Unfortunately, I'll have to wait a bit before I get the latest Sons of Champlin album, Hip Li'l Dreams. The Wife'll kill me if I buy a CD while we still have to weed things out of our weekly grocery list. (Plus, she's not exactly the biggest Bill Champlin fan in the world, which isn't helped by the fact that I play his stuff constantly.)

Fortunately, to tide me over, I've got this video of saxophonist Grady Nichols ("Who?" Don't worry about it.) featuring The Champ singing Stevie Wonder's "Heaven Help Us All". If you have trouble with it hanging, close the window and try it a couple more times. Honest to God, you'll be glad you did!

Hmm. The only name I recognized in that was Stevie. ;) I dig that - people who support the lesser known artists. :o)

Well, Bill Champlin is probably best known for being one of the lead vocalists for the band Chicago. You may have also heard him singing the theme for the TV version of In the Heat of the Night. He was one of the co-writers for Earth, Wind & Fire's "After the Love is Gone" and George Benson's "Turn Your Love Around." That's why he's my idol--a white boy with that much soul gives me hope that a Filipino can come close ;).
