“Dion knows how to sing, and he knows just the right way to craft these songs, these blues songs,” writes none other than Bob Dylan, in the album’s liner notes. “He’s got some friends here to help him out, some true luminaries. But in the end, it’s Dion by himself alone, and that masterful voice of his that will keep you returning to share these blues songs with him.”
