“[Rev. Pearly Brown] could torque down with a stern stiffness, like the second coming of Blind Willie Johnson – except only more mortal…Or just drop the slide, drop the strictness, and drop to bended-knees humility for ‘Savior, Don’t Pass Me By’ and the achingly beautiful ‘Oh What a Morning.’…Deserves attentive recognition.” – Dennis Rozanski, BluesRag
