Saw Chuck live in small venue (Carbondale, CO) a couple years ago.  Very good show and got to have a chat with him.  NIce guy.
Seriously disoriented by so much of it sounding like Morcheeba...

Apparently, that very phrase was heard just before Nostradamus was seen plunging from the garret window of his high-rise apothecary shop.

Just saw Chuck play a 3 hour epic free show last Friday. Awesome entertainer with a great band.

LOL!!
Saw him at Earle Fest couple years ago (Santa Rosa, CA) and really enjoyed him. Especially "I Have A Good Day Now and Then."
Yes, {#Clap} please play more Chuck Prophet.

Groovy....{#Daisy}
Seen him seven or eight times. Great every time. And one of the best guitarists I've ever seen. Hits the nails right on their flat little heads with every solo, and the note paintings are subtle, like in this little gem here ...
Fun trip-hop.  Feets tappin {#Motor} 

Feelin vibes of Morcheeba's The Sea
So nice. Women are weather.
Wah wah and mellotron.
Cooks.

Nope, that other guy, Thomas. Oh wait, he died in '53.

Caught Chuck Prophet last night at Off Broadway in St. Louis, great show!  The sound was good and looked like they had fun.
 
I saw him a year or so ago in a tiny club and I'd agree; they really seem to be having fun on stage; no pretension whatsoever. He's got a great voice IMO.
The more I hear this guy the more I think he is going to be around quite awhile.

Love the wah-wah.  Nice to see it making a comeback.

Cool song. 
More Chuck Prophet, Bill!
I've been listening to RP for almost 8 years now and don't ever remember hearing this song. Seeing the range and dates of song comments, it doesn't appear to have been in all that heavy rotation. I like this song as well as other Chuck Prophet stuff that RP has introduced to me.

What a deep playlist! {#Clap}

exactly: "Blood Like Lemonade"
I guess he was a prophet.  This describes the Brittany Spears freak incident out to a T — well done sir.

Don't know about that, but I am in love with Serge's daughter.{#Hearteyes}
To all you... this Chuck guy sounds like Beck comments.
I'm pretty sure Chuck has a few years on Beck, not many, but a few (like 7) and it's probably the other way around.
Or... they're both very talented and write and sing good stuff that have similarities.
I kind of prefer Chuck over Beck myself... just sayin :o) 
Follow this up with Morcheeba - The Sea.  Would be awesome!

I saw Chuck about a month ago and he rocks!   I think he is VERY talented and the new album is great.   Even Dylan said he was good.   He has the whole package, songwriting, vocals and great live show.

Great tune, great album.
 
Seconded!

For a moment when I heard this, I thought someone had ripped off Chuck's "Summertime Thing." Then I looked and saw he'd ripped off himself. Can he do that?
Very Beck-like with a cool blues guitar.

Very good 9
Great tune, great album.
What's not to like (even though I like some of his other stuff better)?  A solid 7.
I'm liking this tune... to think I first heard this guy when I received a new Dell for University in 2004 and a copy of 'What makes the monkey dance' came with the windows music player package :-)
The strings are Beck a la Sea Change. Very mellow.
It's a sign! I'm going to see Chuck TONIGHT!
Ooh! yay! I like, its smooooooooth! :roflol: :roflol:

Give this album a chance. One of my "selects", out of hundreds of CDs I have about 6 in the car and this one made the cut.

The more I hear from Mr. Prophet, the more I like him. I sense a CD purchase in the immediate future...
Mmmmm, nice! :yes: :roflol: :dance:
