An acoustic blues collection filled with original and traditional African-influenced songs and blues showcasing Scott Ainslie’s fine singing and playing well-supported by the rich and emotional playing of slide and lead guitarist Sam Broussard, Paul Winter Consort cellist Eugene Friesen, and bassist and clean-up hitter T-Bone Wolk.
“The emotional pull of Ainslie's music is always strong, perhaps most so on the slave lament, Thunder's Mouth, and on the slow, serious folk blues Another Man Done Gone.” –DownBeat Magazine
“Pure brilliance...one of the best CDs you will hear this year and any year.” –Countrymusicfactsandnews.com, Nashville TN
“A sturdy record, powerful both as homage and history. But most of all, it reveals a talented tunesmith shaping his unique vision to deep musical roots.” –The Eagle Times, Claremont NH
