Danny Daniels – Sons Of Thunder – 1982

This is Danny’s first solo album. Previously he was in Bethlehem and they had released a single album on Maranatha! Music in 1978. This album is pretty easy listening and you can hear that 70’s influence wandering in and out of several tracks. I wouldn’t say the album has a Rock feel but you can hear some pretty good rock influences especially on “Victims Of Pride” Strangely after this album Danny took a hiatus from making albums instead writing and working in the studio for other artists. Interestingly he wrote several excellent soul tracks performed by soul artists. Anyway he did eventually put out more album, and lots of them, when he returned to the studio in 1991. Bit of trivia for the album is that Rob Watson did some of the keyboard work and Jerry Chamberlain did some backing vocals for the album. Both of them from Daniel Amos of course.
