Darrell is undoubtedly the finest blues harp player currently working in CCM and though no Little Walter or Sonny Boy Williamson displays a drive for blues grit which is both invigorating and satisfying. Not that the rest of his band are slouches. Eric Turner produces some powerful guitar runs pitched somewhere between the raw gutbucket runs of Elmore James and the polished fluidity of T-Bone Burnett. Of course, what sets this album apart from all those mainstream blues albums are lyrics which speak of Jesus and this set is brim full of Darrell’s gritty vocals extolling us to “Tell The Truth” and “Walk With Me Jesus”. Timeless.
