4 Sons of Champlin…

BGO Records reissue of 4 Sons of Champlin albums…

4sons

The band’s Columbia album from 1973 coupled with the three Ariola Records albums from 1975, 1976 and 1977.

Three of these albums made the US Top 200 but the writing was on the wall and the group split in 1977, with Bill Champlin pursuing a solo career before joining Chicago.

In recent years the Sons have reformed, continuing to gig and record with Champlin back in the fold.

Digitally remastered and slipcased and with new notes by John Tobler
