A Person Like You (The Kings of Crownsville)
HAIL TO THE KINGS. A Person Like You, the latest CD by The Kings of Crownsville, is earthy and joyful with a down home (yet sophisticated) quality. Kudos to Steve Johnson for his witty, wise and wonderful lyrics. Throughout, a rhythmic message of positivity and good humor abounds that will uplift even the most downhearted listener. Although each track is noteworthy and stands on its own, this clever collection of original music and diverse arrangements interweaves into a motif of truth. I thought I detected a dash of Dr. John in the narrative and a smidgen of Steely Dan in some of the vocal harmonies, but all of these unique songs bear the stamp of The Kings. All of the musicians contribute their impressive talents to this treasure trove of musical gems.
