If you're into fingerpicking acoustic blues, this album has some pretty cool stuff. Reverend Gary has an awesome blues voice, and does a great job using tasteful little licks to fill the space between vocals. This is the way acoustic country blues was meant to sound. Of course, the coolest thing about Reverend Gary is the fact that he basically spent all of his later years singing on the streets in Harlem. Since he was a reverend, most of the songs have a religious tone.
