Mighty Sam McClain – Joy and Pain – CD
(Ruf Records) Listening to Sam belt out the sledgehammer soul and down home blues on this CD and I can hear why his name is preceded by the adjective Mighty. Recorded live in Europe the richness of this album in spectacular. Even more amazing when you realize that after hitting it big in 1966 with his tune “Sweet Dreams (Of You)”, Sam sank into obscurity and was homeless for a while. He emerged again in 1988 and from what I can hear, is still going strong. Excellent CD. {Mite}
