What we have on offer here is a contemporary guitar album that seamlessly blends all the hallmarks of traditional folk and blues.
The album opens with the title track where harmonica cuts across the sleepy guitar and melodies. ‘Sweetheart’ oozes soulful with soulful melodies that perfectly embody the heartache that is the essence of folk. On side two the electric guitar comes in prominently and jostles for position with Morrison’s brash rasping vocals. ‘Weary’ wraps the album up with soft drums laying a gentle cradle for the folky guitar to rest on. Necessary, to say the least.
