Many songwriters have paid tribute to Robert Johnson, but few have captured the mystery and power of that legendary bluesman as Brown does on "Dusty Woods." Kelly Joe Phelps's slide guitar lends a Delta blues feel to several other songs, and there's an eerie mystery as well to songs such as "Speaking in Tongues," a sincere tribute to holy-roller churches, and "Billy from the Hills," a tribute to his backwoods father. Many of 1997's albums are more obvious than Slant 6 Mind, but few have been as substantial. --Geoffrey Himes

For most it does not come easy, but the truth usually hurts...and once you hear it you get hooked.
