Charlie Robison released "Good Times" on September 21, 2004 on Dualtone Records. Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks lends her vocals on "El Cerrito Place" and Natalie's father, Lloyd Maines co-produced this album with Charlie. "El Cerrito Place" blew me away and is certainly the stand out track on this album. "Photograph" is also another great single showing promise. Charlie Robison, like some others in the industry, has this very Texas influenced style of music. While I enjoy some of this influence, it is generally not well-accepted by the radio which leads to very little radio airplay.
"Good Times" is a reputable album and certain singles are capable of being hits, but little radio airplay, it's virtually impossible. I would recommend buying "Good Times" just purely for his single, "El Cerrito Place." There are other highly regarded singles, but "El Cerrito Place" definitely overshadows the whole album. Overall, this is a pretty good album although some singles weren't as good as others as expected on most albums. - Janelle Landauer
