Sorry to rain on the parade, but I ain't hearin' it. With Tweedy on board you'd have though this would be a home run. It's a good record, but it's only a base hit.

I have to agree with Jim DeRogatis and call it a "Burn It" record.

In 1996, she released a gospel album with just her singing and Lucky Peterson playing the B3. I love it, but the cranky allmusic.com review says "a very bare-bones set, and after the fourth song, ... the format becomes boring and the songs begin to sound similar."

But if you like Mavis, gospel and the Hammond, you'll love it.
