All things considered, it's somewhat surprising that Josh White, Jr. hadn't recorded a full-fledged tribute album for his father earlier, but however long overdue the collection is, it more than makes up for the delay with the quality of the collection. Creating a truly fitting tribute, he displays the wonderfully rich guitar playing and singing that made his father a legend on classics like "Gonna Live the Life," "Jesus Gonna Make Up My Dying Bed," and a smoldering "House of the Rising Sun." A strongly spiritual quality shines through White Jr.'s expressive folk blues, and though he doesn't outshine his father, he definitely more than does the material justice.
