This terrific trio has made the standout album of their career. Wendell and Sherman Holmes,
along with Popsy Dixon, remember when soul and gospel music had the same sound, but they never feel
like an oldies act. They blend soaring voices in raspy harmonies that seem more spontaneous than rehearsed. The Brothers tackle an eclectic range of material, from Jimmy Reed’s rollicking
blues “Big Boss Man,” to Jim Reeves’ sentimental country ballad “He’ll Have to Go,” to a breathtaking,
churchy version of Townes Van Zandt’s tender “If I Needed You.” Add a handful of originals from gifted
lead guitarist Wendell, including the scruffy “You Won’t Be Livin’ Here Anymore,” and down-home
perfection isn’t far away.
