This eleven-track collection features some of the most thrilling electric slide guitar playing ever captured. The band blends rock, funk and even the deepest blues with a ferocity that will startle fans of Duane Allman, Derek Trucks and even Muddy Waters. Two songs from the album celebrate the music of Elmore James, the Chicago blues legend who made his mark as a master of the slide guitar technique that would later influence greats including Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and, of course Robert Randolph.

Calvin Cooke, Darick Campbell, Chuck Campbell and Aubrey Ghent are the extraordinary members of The Slide Brothers – the greatest living musicians who embody the Sacred Steel tradition. The compelling music these legendary artists create extends far beyond sacred steel to encompass rock, blues and soul, all celebrated with a sound that is uniquely their own. Robert Randolph, the most successful artist to emerge from the Sacred Steel tradition, encouraged these iconic performers to share their outstanding gifts with the world.

The first studio album by pedal steel icons the Slide Brothers incorporates the sacred steel tradition in gospel music with rock, funk, and blues. The quartet and like-minded co-producers John McDermott and Robert Randolph — the pedal steel guitarist and leader of the Family Band — embrace the philosophy that traditional gospel and secular music should not be divided but celebrated. That diversity is reflected in the tasteful union of material linking the Allman Brothers classic “Don’t Keep Me Wonderin’,” Fatboy Slim’s trip-hop hit “Praise You,” two Elmore James tracks, George Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord,” and an instrumental version of the spiritual “Wade in the Water.” No matter what categorization this music is relegated to, it doesn’t change the genuine celebratory nature the Slide Brothers bring to the listener. Making special appearances with the band are Calvin Cooke, Chuck Campbell, Darick Campbell and Aubrey Ghent, the Blind Boys of Mississippi, Shemekia Copeland, Billy Cox, and the aforementioned Robert Randolph & the Family Band.
