This album is just stunning. It has to be said that much of the material is very dark, but this is the blues, after all. 'Saint Martha's Blues' is about the real-life lynching of his great-grandfather. If you've heard Billie Holiday's song 'Strange Fruit', then this has a similar power. Three Days and Three Nights is a fictional tale of a homeless father comforting his dying daughter, Resurrection Blues is about a man about to be crucified, while 'Mama Don't You Do It' is about the real-life violent relationship between his parents. It's not all doom and gloom, 'Stick On You', well, you can guess what that one's about. This CD is addictive.
