        Reviews :

        The first and most enduring influence on the development of upstate New York native John Mooney’s music resulted from his meeting the legendary Son House in Rochester, New York. Impressed by the 16-year-old musician’s talent, House eventually took Mooney under his wing. Mooney pays tribute to his legendary mentor with two House covers for this gritty, drenched-with-emotion recording.

        Mooney’s style incorporates both savage energy and sensitivity, all in the bag of traditional blues. He’s a dynamic guitarist with a special talent for slide playing, and he’s a commanding vocalist. His discography, dating back to 1979’s Comin’ Your Way for Blind Pig, includes more than 12 titles on eight difference labels. But hearing him on direct-to-disc LP, recorded totally stripped down and natural, live in a church sanctuary, is truly the closest thing to hearing him in person. In fact, with the right hi-fi, it’s utterly spooky how in-person this recording sounds. 

         

        Direct-to-disc (D2D) recording refers to sound recording methods that record audio directly onto analog disc masters bypassing steps as master tapes, overdubs, and mix downs from multi-tracked masters. This approach avoids problems of analog recording tape such as tape hiss (high frequency noise).
