On the appropriately titled Under My Own Disguise, Chris Darrow 's follow-up to 1973's Chris Darrow, the journeyman Southern California country-rocker continues to sound more like a former group member than a current solo artist. His sturdy, if undistinguished baritone is mixed down, no louder than the musical instruments, which gives the album an under-produced sound. Under My Own Disguise is not as concerned as Chris Darrow with exploring the artist's eclecticism; there are no Japanese or chamber music touches this time, just different sides of country and blues styles, for.
Former Kaleidoscope member Chris Darrow also passed through the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and paired with Jeff Hanna in the Corvettes, providing backup support to Linda Ronstadt, before getting his own shot at a solo career on United Artists Records in 1973. That resulted in two albums, Chris Darrow and Under My Own Disguise (1974), combined and replicated here in a package containing two LPs, two CDs, and a 48-page photo book. Under My Own Disguise is a bit more stylistically consistent, but still leaves room for a cover of the Ink Spots ("Java Jive"), rag music ("Live or Die Rag"), and the blues ("You Can't Outplay the Blues").

Set 'Em Wild, Set 'Em Free Press Release No. 2 February 9, 2009 Opening with a groove unlike anything Akron/Family have ever laid to tape, the first track on Set 'Em Wild, Set 'Em Free kicks off a new chapter for the band. The percussive thunder and anthemic electric guitars of "Everyone is Guilty" make a bold statement, touching on everything from Fela Kuti to Sly and the Family Stone in under six psychedelic minutes. This is not the Akron/Family you think you know.
