West Coast Diaries, Vol. 3
, a collection of songs unreleased on CD, opens with a faithful version of Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson," followed by some light poppy tunes, including a couple of gems. Charlie Peacock
is quite the pop tunesmith/performer, with a high-pitched voice that sounds somewhat like Smokey Robinson
. The highlights include the soulful "When Love Was Spoken" and the aforementioned "Mrs. Robinson." Supporting players include Brent Bourgeois
and Lyle Workman
. Even though some tracks sound demo-ish, this is a decent set.
