I originally heard some of this CD on the Bluesville XM radio station. Bill Wax was interviewing Rita Chiarelli and I was fancinated by the interview and the music. I immediately wrote down her name and the CD. I thought that a Canadian singer recording a CD in one of the most notorious prisions, Angola, LA in the US was highly unusual. The music is superb and the prison band was excellent. A neat combination of Blues and a little bit of Gospel give the listener a great sample of music from the Delta.
