"Just listen to "Mistreated" - that's what's the body and soul in music"
One for the money, two for the road better get ready. . .

"Roger Chapman cares little for what's trendy, popular, or in vogue. The man is a living legend, but his style of singing has always divided folks into pro-Chappo or anti-Chappo camps. Pity the fools in the anti-Chappo camps. Kiss My Soul is one of the stronger releases in Chapman's astonishingly prolific catalog of recordings made under his name. The title track Kiss My Soul and Two Pieces of Silver showcase his smoldering power. On several selections, Chappo takes his time, building up a head of steam like a coal-fired locomotive tackling a steep grade. By the time tracks such as One More Whiskey or Mistreated are nearly three-fourths finished, Chappo and his crack band will have you out of your seats. Steve Simpson, his long-time guitarist in the Shortlist, showcases his skills are many spots. Since the long-lamented passing of two of the greatest bands to come from England, Family and Streetwalker, Chappo has kept the torch burning bright. One flaw on this and some of the other solo works is that the production work is not as crisp and tight as we have become accustomed to these days. Keep in mind that Chapman has never been accorded the recording budget or perks granted to more popular but far inferior vocalists such as Rod Stewart. Postscript: I cannot help but miss the contributions of his long-time writing and performing partner, the great guitarist Charlie Whitney, whose own career has faded away."
