Working with Anders Osborne (producer, guitar, vocals, and additional vibes) and Gallatic drummer Stanton Moore, this 10 track stripped down and raw look at a life as it reaches that all important crossroads where one has to make the choices and decisions that will effect the future for a long long time.
Starting with 'Sinking Ship' he reminds us all that 'we don't have to walk the plank on a sinking ship' - there are options open to us. Whether it is a relationship, a job, or lifestyle choice we are not helpless and there is always room for negotiations (hopefully). 'Corn Whiskey' is an instrumental what allows Johnny to showcase his harp excellent playing skills. He has become equally adept at both the diatonic and chromatic harmonica and know show to get down and dirty with them throughout this release.
One might find these songs disturbing and too dark and primal for casual listening, but I urge you to put this baby on and listen to it. His handling of this time in his life is laid out here for us to listen to and be part of the resolution. 'Johnny and Janie' paints a picture of the fragility of what appears to be a strong, unchallenged man and how a love gone bad can make him do desperate things. The title track is just a raucous New Orleans romp with sharp overtones of menace and once again the subject of choice and how it is up to the individual to make the choice - but ya better make the right one cos 'the lord is waiting and the devil is too'.
This fine release is unlike anything else Mr. Sansone has previously shared with us. It is modern, yet strongly connected to past both in theme and sound. Within the framework of this release Mr. Sansone proves his worth lyrically, vocally and instrumentally. A good candidate for nominations across the Blues field I cannot be happier for him.
