  • The long-running vocal trio the Holmes Brothers has been mixing up a potent blend of R&B, blues, gospel, and country since 1980. This sympathetic, raw-sounding production features a wide-ranging collection of songs by artists like Nick Lowe, Rick Nielsen, Lyle Lovett, and George Jones, as well as by the Brothers themselves. Led by Wendell Holmes, the band's trademark harmonies soar on cuts like Lowe's "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love and Understanding," Jones's "Ain't It Funny What a Fool Will Do," and their own gospel-infused "Standing in the Need of Love." The disc also features a charming Cajun version of John Fogerty's "Bad Moon Rising." Guests include Joan Osborne, Rosanne Cash, and the Band's Levon Helm.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.67) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "This veteran trio from Virginia makes fervent country soul from the John Fogerty, Lyle Lovett and Nick Lowe songbooks..."

Down Beat (p.60) - "Vocals ring loud and clear throughout the program....They proffer a signature three-part harmony adaptation of the classic gospel quartet style..."

Dirty Linen (p.80) - "The combination of entwined vocals and recreated songs adds up to a quietly enthralling album."

No Depression (p.86) - "[The songs] showcase not only the vocal grit of Wendell Holmes, but his under-heralded guitar playing as well. The result is one terrific album."
