Ken Tamplin – Tamplin – 1993

This is Ken’s 3rd album and wow is this a great album. This is a straight up in your face Rock & Roll album. Unfortunately I missed this one back when it came out but it easily would have been playing at top volume with the windows down in my Dodge Charger in 1993. I can honestly say that this is probably in my top 100 CCM albums. That said I haven’t listened to it repeatedly for more than a week so maybe it will wane but I doubt it. What really surprises me me about the album is that the band were essentially all studio musicians. While I truly believe studio musicians are often the best musicians around and album of them can sound a little loose and unrehearsed at time. Not this album it sounds like the band has been together for years. Anyway I’ve gone on long enough, just listen to the album.
