Fistful Of Mercy


This one got by me on its release date of October 5th; a supergroup of sorts featuring Ben Harper, Joseph Arthur and Dhani Harrison.

Frankly, I never got Ben Harper and his bland attempt to modernize roots music. Joseph Arthur has failed to moved me. And Dhani Harrison's first venture, Thenewno2, was interesting and nothing more.

Together, they've hit upon something. The CSN comparisons will no doubt surface, but what I am hearing here, especially on these two songs, would not have been out of place on the elder Harrison's "All Things Must Pass."

IN VAIN OR TRUE






FISTFUL OF MERCY




You should buy it HERE.

In Vain Or True sounds more like a Wackers track than CSN to my ears. A more satisfying comparison, as well!

Not familiar with the Wackers, but there is a definite CSN quality to that track IMHO. Nice stuff.
