Favorite People – CD review from Montreal’s ” Mirror “

Favorite People (independent) – Montreal’s Mark Robertson may be best known for his key involvement in local bands Public Enema and Bullfrog, but this seasoned songwriter and musician makes honest soul music that sounds like D’Angelo, Shuggie Otis and Steve Miller stuck in a elevator. True to its title, the album combines the rich and relaxed vocal outpourings of this family man with some of his favourite people, like Kid Koala, Slim Williams, Joanna Peters, Massimo Sansalone, Peter Santiago and Gutierrez, for some baby-making music at its best. Listeners will be happy to know that this pop-funk-soul gem is available free for download at www.robertsonmark.com, a selfless gesture that goes hand in hand with the quality grooves found on this 11-song sure-shot. Robertson is easily one of Montreal’s best kept secrets. 8.5/10 (Scott C)
