Jim Gustin’s force-of-nature voice brings to mind Long John Baldry and perhaps Canadians Big Doug McLean and Jim Byrnes. Some compare his vocals to Springsteen. He has a natural smoky rasp in his baritone that’s simply perfect for the funky blues he and his band lay down. So, while Gustin’s vocals are enough to carry this effort, there’s female counterbalance in the soulful gospel-like vocals of his partner, Jeri Goldenhar (aka Truth Jones). The pair wrote all ten originals, Gustin with six and collaborating on four, where Truth Jones takes the vocal lead.
