Chris Darrow/Under My Own Disguise

During the late 1960s and early ’70s, an interconnected group of musicians in Southern California was blurring the boundaries of country and rock while imbuing both with their scene’s laid-back ethos. Despite having been a member of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and playing alongside the future Eagles in Linda Ronstadt’s backing group, Chris Darrow’s contributions to that sound have been relatively unheralded. Hopefully, this reissue of his second and third solo albums (from 1973 and 1974, respectively), quietly charming gems that play quite well together on a single CD, will help to change that.
