Profile This CD, originally released in 1992, is a real winner. It probably has more philosophic and social commentary in the lyrics than any of Bill’s solo CD’s. Every song is truly great.

Included are the studio versions of two of my all time favorites, “First And Last” and “Headed For The Top”. “In Love Too Long” is another cool rocker. “Highest Stakes”, “For Less Than A Song”, and “Fly By The Light” are more favorites. “The Thunder” and “When Love Comes Around” are great songs too, with the added treat of having Terry Haggerty’s wonderful guitar playing.

Bill has an impressive list of guest artists and musicians on this CD. In addition to Terry Haggerty, there’s Tris Imboden, Greg Mathieson, Bruce Gaitsch, Steve Lukather, Luis Conte, George Hawkins, Joseph Williams, Tom Scott, Abraham Laboriel, Tamara Champlin, Carmen Twillie, Mona Lisa Young, Danny Pelfrey, and Bill Churchville. This is a must have for all Bill Champlin fans! Don’t miss it!
