of course this is my opinion and it could be subject to change, but i like 'talking up' what i like....so there:
this little devotional book is great, most especially the first two lectures contained therein. i've read a lot of devotional books. for me, the ones that help you to be 'aware' and the ones that help you 'to pray and experiment' while reading are the best. this is one of them.
i've been watching videos by R.L. Burnside on You Tube for some time, but the CD collections i've tried at the record store have often been....well, not that great...either poor recording quality or 'off the wall' stuff that the 'fat possum' record people did with R.L. later in his career
(most especially to appeal to younger folks that were hip and punk and probably didn't know much about the blues i've read)
anyway, this is the collection for me....recording quality is good, mostly R.L. and his guitar doing his 'one chord' north mississippi hill country blues....it's a good un'!!!
remember what i said about the first book above? well, ditto here. except easier to launch into 'the most important of coversations' even after reading a few lines...liner notes on this edition seem to be great.
ha! this is here just because i like the society of st. vincent de paul and the work they do and i look forward to getting this little publication in the mail. it came today!!!
