Magical Mystery Man
Charting in the late 60's (as Billy Charne) with a series of Top 10 singles for RCA including 'Susie's Better Half ', plus 'When You Were a Lady' and 'To Ma Ray Tom O Ray' (both Canadian Number #1's), it's no surprise that Chernoff continues to impress with his free wheeling musical travels and takes us along for the ride with this latest release: 'Magical Mystery Man.' 'Magical Mystery Man' is Alberta home grown, yet abounds with the flavor of the American West. These melodies reveal and reminisce as on 'Even Poets Grow Old' and capture the wild spirit in all of us on tunes like 'Down at the Rodeo,' but it's tracks like 'Hard Living Cowboy' that get our blood flowing and hearts racing. Production from superb guitarist Dave Hamilton, plus exceptional contributions of electric and steel guitars, dobro, harmonica, fiddle, piano and more, help convey Chernoff 's solid album, only an artist with longevity can produce. This engaging americana song collection is great comfort food for all of us starved for the real spirit of country and americana ...slices of life that taste better with age.
