Boomkat Product Review:
"The musical journeys of Carol Kleyn continue with the reissue of ‘Takin’ The Time’, her eclectic second album, originally released in 1980. Eight years after writing her first songs and dropping out of college to pursue her passion as a street musician, Carol was still following the love, making music and magic as she roamed free up and down the California coastline. The harp that Bobby Brown gave her back in 1971 was still her main axe whenever she played, and the primary instrument she used on her debut album ‘Love Has Made Me Stronger’. That record had been self-produced, and Carol sold copies wherever she played, but for the production of ‘Takin’ The Time’, Bobby Brown stepped into the producer’s role. He had already produced two incredible albums for himself (‘The Enlightening Beam Of Axonda’ and ‘Bobby Brown Live’) and in the studio, he succeeded in marrying his sound to Carol’s, producing a sleek, light vibe that conveyed all the hope and joy that Carol’s songs held within themselves. Carol played with a band for the first half of the record, while the other half embraced the more familiar solo setting that her audience knew and loved. These were smooth sounds for a new decade that included concerns about the environment and an ever present prayer for peace. ‘Takin’ The Time’ was recorded for Carol’s own label, Turtledove Records, and was followed three years later by ‘Return Of The Silkie’ and another reissue from the singular discography of Carol Kleyn. Let ‘Takin’ The Time’ take you away, like a sun-filled afternoon, on a Summer’s day, dancing ever so lightly on a polished disc accompanied with golden photos and Carol’s own recollections of those laid-back, California days."
