I was NOT prepared to like this album (which later turned to TRUE LOVE) but 12 cuts later, I was absolutely blown away by this blues extravaganza, stupendously recorded in pure DSD. The Mighty Horns which back Mighty Sam create a wall of sound which envelops the listener and with shades of the Allman Brothers and late 60's Al Green (before he became Reverend Al), Mighty Sam's vocals seduce with wisdom and grace.

Top tapping inducing and spiritually uplifting in a good way, I heartily recommend BLUES FOR THE SOUL to every listener with a heart and a penchant for music making at its very best.

The sound on this 2000 SACD Stereo release rivals anything I've heard (including SHM~SACDs) in this format!

Performance:   Sonics:
This is the 2nd Sam McClain sacd I have purchased. Both titles are excellent sonically.

This Telarc Dsd recorded disc is totally awesome in all aspects of its sound and performance.
There is no compression involved here so the volume has to be turned up very high but thats when the sound becomes amazing. Horns, guitar, bass and drums are captured very naturally and sound as such. The listener can feel like he is actually in the studio with the band.

McClain and the bands music is a combination of soul and blues. All the passion and vibrancy of the actual event has been captured perfectly by the Dsd recording process. McClain has a great voice and his band is excellent too.

I cannot recommend this disc enough....especially if you like to try new musical tastes. On this disc it all comes together perfectly.

The recording.........the sound.........the performance makes this a fantastic sacd to own.
If you have even a decent system this disc is guaranteed to be one of the best you will own.

Highly recommended.
