Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the February 2001 Issue of Stereophile!
Spirit & The Blues is a real odyssey of Eric's music. Here we find everything
from black Mississippi blues to spirituals, ballads, country and even reggae -
sometimes with an almost electrified swing, but guaranteed "unplugged" in the
finest Opus 3 tradition! Eric has gathered a large number of musicians from
rock, folk and blues and, last but not least, "The Deacons" -- a gospel quintet
from the USA which was actually formed while this recording was being made.
