This is by far the most raw recording Powell has released thus far and truly captures the essence of his live original show – complete with stories and audience participation.
John Hanus (guitar), Joe Bell (Bass) and Dom Scicchitano (Drums) join him for several fun full band versions of the tunes.
Americana music journalists have written about the song Poison Diamond “This is a really nice slow-burn of a song. It slowly unfurls and reveals itself on the back of sparse guitar, distant organ and shuffling drums. Powell’s voice is the clincher though, with just the right amount of grit and grain in his tone to convey the heavy emotion of the song. A plaintive ringing guitar solo is the icing on the cake.” – Post To Wire
