“Take off These Chains” is primarily original blues work with full band arrangements. Some of the songs have jazzy inflections. “God’s Grandeur” takes an 1877 poem as its basis, and goes in some interesting directions. Lyrics range from sweetly soulful to satirical.

Dean Rathje: voices, guitars, mandolin, dobro, piano, bass.
