Darrell Mansfield must be one of the greatest harmonica players anywhere - the solo tag at the end of "No More Blues" and middle eight of "Middle Dollar Feeling" blew me away. His vocals have blues stamped all over - from the choking lows to the screaming highs, and the lyrics! The lyrics are hard hitting and positive from "You Got To Move" to "Jesus Coming Soon" and Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" put back into its original context of courage in the face of persecution and trust in God. You won't find a blues album that betters this one anywhere whether it's by Cray, Clapton, King - anyone.
