Chill out with Bob
This is a fine album to chill out to, from the 70's disco-jazz sounds of "Put a little love in my direction" and "Gimme all the lovin' you got" right down to the haunting melodies of "Maybe I'm a fool" and "The big machine" you can't lose with this album of instrumental versions of classic songs written by Bob Chambers.
Great arrangements, great musicianship, great songs!
I recommend this album to all lovers of quality, style and good taste.

unpretentious, commercial synthesiser ditties
The tracks are strongly influenced by the disco age. The tracks are very melodious, and ballads alternate with the up-tempo tracks. They are played on keyboards and make me think of unpretentious, commercial synthesiser ditties.
