The Bottom Line:
Small contribution to fine album by soulful singer.
Jim Tullio fecit.
"This is the joy that I have, the world didn't give it to me" - Mavis.
John plays mutron guitar and has a small but effective role.
John Giblin does bass and electric guitar, by the way, on track #4 God Is Not Sleeping (now why would he do that).
