The opening track "Boogie Man" clouts the deceiver fairly and squarely in the mouth both vocally and musically. This plaintively lays it all out on the solid, bluesy passion with great abandonment and honesty. Joining in this blues rock statement recorded in Macon, Georgia and Lebanon (Tennessee that is!) is country rocker Charlie Daniels. If you like your Christian music hot and spicy, you won't find it comes more peppery than this. Not for the faint hearted, Larry Howard says he left behind money, alcohol, drugs, and other satanic traps before he found his fulfilment in personal faith.
