Reverend Freakchild’s cross-weave of blues, folk and psychedelia makes for a tough, tight package of both earthbound and ethereal commentary, evoking the spirit of the folkie outliers that populated the esoteric ESP-Disk label in the 60’s & early 70’s.  His blues-anchored vocals and guitar work make for convincing delivery of his messaging both ground-level and celestial.  Tracks of note include “All I Got Is Now”, “Dial It In” and “Tears of Fire”.  A second disc features radio interviews that reinforce the Good Rev’s persona.
