My Old Friend the Blues

This set is essentially a re-release of Percy Sledge's Shining Through the Rain from 2004 with a different title, modified cover art, and a bonus track (a duet with Carla Olson on "Honest as Daylight"). Whatever the title, the album remains a fine late-career issue from a singer who specialized in bringing an anguished resigned passion to powerful deep soul ballads. Tracks like" Shining Through the Rain," "Misty Morning," and "Fall Inside Your Eyes" are classic Sledge -- part blues, part country, and all heart.
