This is passionate blues played with raw emotion! Singer/songwriter Donnie V
continues to record live in the studio on his follow up CD to "Hard Rain Fall"
with just acoustic and resonator guitars, harmonicas and the tapping of his
boots. There are no overdubs or click tracks just great songs sung from the
soul! His wife Leonetta joins in on tamborine on "Wonderful Healer" and "I Have
Decided" which Mel Spinnela accompanies with mallet on bass drum. On "Death
Letter" you can hear hand clapping by Leonetta, Mel and Mark Neil creating a
sound reminiscent of the early Chain Gang recordings of Alan Lomax for The
Library of Congress. "Donít Let Nobody Turn You Around" is complicated rhythms
as Leonetta pounds a counter beat on the back of Donnieís Guild Acoustic and
Donnie slaps the face of his 1930 National Resonator.
Donnie sings passionately about his own lifeís sorrows and a lonely broken
world searching for love. The love Found in Jesus!
The CD ends with a solo performance on electric guitar and harmonica. "Tears"
is a song Donnie wrote in the 80ís about the loneliness and insecurities
experienced by himself as well as so many others!
These are songs with a message to a lost and broken world: Jesus Loves You!!
