Colin Linden is a Canadian singer/songwriter (he penned 10 of 13 on this disc) and blues guitarist who keeps growing in stature. This disc takes the best sound of the Band (the opener "Moon Follow Me Home") and mixes in some of the witty, intelligent sensibility of Jesse Winchester ("When the Carnival Ends"), excellent electric blues guitar playing, and the soul and gospel resonance of the Staple Singers. There are many switches and change-ups along the way, none thrown in just to shift; there isn't an extraneous cut on this disc.
