Song Description

________________________________________________ "Time Loop" record review Chet Nichols : Time Loop (Kama Sutra - 1972) Category : criminally overlooked 4:33 stars If you're into smart and poetic Folky singer/songwriter stuff, then this obscure release is a must have because of the high quality of the songs and the driven yet pleasant way in which they are performed. But as several of these Chet Nichols songs also have doses of Rock, I guess the album could also be of interest to fans of Classic Rock and Folk Rock. 'Time Loop' has a pure and honest and at the same time slightly melancholic feel that's reminiscent of James Taylor or, to name someone more recent, José Gonzales. And it's just as good as the best material either of these artists released, which raises the question why this album didn't get the attention it deserved and why it didn't propel Nichols to stardom. One listen to the album highlights 'Electra' and 'Who stole the Ivy' is enough to make you understand what a gifted composer and lyricist he was. In fact, there's only one average track on the entire album (not counting the superfluous outro 'Quasar Sleeper'). Highly recommended.

Story Behind the Song

A song about the ups and downs, the ins and outs of life. A song about phases in life. This is the title track to my first album produced for Kama Sutra Records.

Broadjam Member Reviews

a very likeable light fun sounding rock & roll track, has a 60's vibe to it but sounds modern, nice vocal performance and piano and guitar backing is a good balance that gives it a cool style
enjoyed

    - Tristyn Leach

For a second, I thought this was a cover of "Crocodile Rock" but it quickly morphed into its own existence. Very good beat. Great riff, and just an overall really good sounding piece with great arrangement, instrumentation and lyrics. Wish there was more of this stuff out there today.

CHORUS
Spinning on the time loop
They start to phase you in
When the man comes and turns the wheel
He?ll phase you out again
Spinning on the time loop
They start to phase you in
When the man comes and turns the wheel
He?ll phase you back again

VERSE 1
Yesterday was your point of disappearing
Yesterday was yesterday and that?s no doubt
Yesterday was your point of disappearing
And disappearing is the only way out

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
When the time came to take your place
Was it really worth the taking?
When the time came to change your hand
Was it worth the re-arranging?
When your need poked you full of holes
Was it really worth the habit?
Is it worth all these illusions
When people treat you like they own you?

REPEAT CHORUS
