"First let me say with all my heart that I by no means take what I'm about to say lightly or for granted. I never thought of writing my own liner notes. Someone else has always done that and I am grateful. But to talk to you myself makes me very, very humble.   This is my third album for Joe Harley - AudioQuest Music - who gave me my first chance at writing, singing and producing my own music. As I talk about this project, I'm hoping that you also come to know the man inside the music. Enjoy... This music is meant to be a little different than either of the last two albums. I wanted it to be more mixed, up-tempo, and hopefully informative, inspirational and honest. I think I achieved that.  This album is dedicated to all the homeless, downtrodden and broken-spirited people all over the world. There is hope, my friends. But you must keep the faith."

- Sam McClain

"The title of this CD couldn't be more descriptive of its contents, for it illustrates that Mighty Sam McClain is indeed a master of sledgehammer soul and down-home electric blues." 

- Alex Henderson, All Music Guide

"McClain's third album for AudioQuest Music extends his winning streak. Soul lives wherever Mighty Sam McClain hangs his hat."

 - Living Blues

"McClain fires heartfelt lyrics to the core. He engulfs listeners in his enormous soul messages of love, exceptance, repentence, and honesty."

- Blues Review

"Mama! You've got to hear this one. Possibly the only senior capable of assuming Otis Redding's throne."

- Stereophile
