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
