  • This collection of solo acoustic performances was recorded live in 1994, just months before Hawkins's death. After a checkered recording career and years spent performing his unique brand of soul tinged with country and blues for passersby at Venice Beach, California, Hawkins finally reached the masses with his music via the spacious coffers of DGC Records. This live album, though, captures him at his most riveting, using only his acoustic guitar and gritty, Sam Cooke-cum-Richie Havens vocal styling to deliver 20 mostly self-penned tunes.
  • From the country-tinged self-pity of Webb Pierce's "There Stands The Glass" to the brutally realistic portrait of life below the poverty line on Hawkins's own "Sorry You're Sick," the singer comes across like a force of nature, with no possible obstacles separating him from the direct, intense delivery of the song. Ultimately, his message is one of faith and salvation, both earthly and spiritual, as evinced on "A Thing Called Love" and John Fogerty's "Long As I Can See The Light."
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (1/30/98, p.64) - "...compellingly document[s] the earthy genius of the late folk-bluesman, who crafted a life of intense hardship into a stylistically diverse, remarkably expressive body of work....demonstrates the vetern busker's uncanny ease as a live performer."
