Product Description

After twenty years of working in obscure New York City bars, the Holmes Brothers finally began to get the recognition they had so long deserved with this album of blues, gospel and soul music, released in 1990. Wendell Holmes, Sherman Holmes and Popsy Dixon sing tight, gospel-derived harmonies that transform even familiar songs into powerful, fresh statements. Liner notes by Peter Gurlanick.


With this initial release for the Rounder label, the Holmes Brothers had everyone wondering where they'd been for the past 30 years. The truth is, even after finding their way from the backwoods of Virginia to New York City, it still took decades of dues-paying for Sherman Holmes, Wendell Holmes, and Popsy Dixon to finally hit upon their formula. One can only wish they'd found it sooner, because their unique synthesis of down-home gospel, juke-joint blues, and country is a revelation. Electrifying originals like "The Final Round" and "Squeal Like an Eel" share the limelight with soaring spirituals like "None but the Righteous." Traditional blues like their version of St. Louis Jimmy Oden's "Going Down Slow" showcase the sparkling guitar work of Wendell Holmes. But in the end, it's the trio's harmonizing on "When Something Is Wrong with My Baby" that really steals the show. Added bonus of liner notes by music historian Peter Guralnick. --Ken Hohman
