Great but inconsistent

Drella118

This guy is an awesome and totally under-appreciated talent. However, overall this album is somewhat hit and miss. None of the tracks is bad, although some of it would only reach the level of filler on an album by say Marvin Gaye or Wilson Pickett. Having said that, there are some songs on the album that have been criminally ignored by the mainstream. The Truth Shall Make you Free is definately up there with my favourite tracks of all time

Tracks 5 21 & 27 are beyond the ordinary fare served up here. Could edge there way into an Old Skool Funk set.

THANK YOU EMUSIC!

I remember hearing "The Truth Shall Make You Free" on the radio when I was growing up in Brooklyn. I had all but given up on finding it until I came across the compilation on emusic....all I can say is THANK YOU!

Delicious!

This is definately some good ol'soul! This is what you turn up real loud at home, in the car, take it to play in the office too. It's just pure bread soul-every once in a while, you will find something to quench your thirst. Emusic is quite the oasis.

Whew-eu-eu-Wee.......

FIVE STARS - hell, make it 10! Man, where you been -- or where I been? This guy is mighty! Damn, strains of the JBG, the Big Red O, and Rufus abound. (The James Brown Group, Otis Redding and Rufus Thomas for you yunguns.) This is what I love about emusic! Finding this kind of pure, soulful artistry when you thought it was all gone and replaced by no-talent, nuttin but frontin!

The Ponderosa Stomp

By John Morthland, Contributor

The Ponderosa Stomp, which is organized essentially by record collectors and takes place in New Orleans mid-week between the two Jazzfest weekends, is an eMusic.com kind of event. It's a two-night, marathon (6 PM to 4 AM) celebration of the unsung heroes and one-hit wonders of American music, including early rock 'n'roll, rockabilly, swamp pop, blues, soul, funk and garage bands. Needless to say, many of them record for independent labels. So many, in fact,… more »

They Say All Music Guide

The first-ever CD compilation of singles from the uncompromising Mighty Hannibal features his groundbreaking antiwar hit, “Hymn No. 5,” as well as minor hits like “Jerkin’ the Dog” and “I Need a Woman (Cause I’m a Man).” More revealing, perhaps, is the inclusion of several early-’70s tracks that inexplicably could not find a label to release them at the time. However, the sweet and tender declaration of love “We’re Gonna Make It” and the good-time party tune “Meet Me at Mary’s Place” do not prepare one for the saga of “I’m Coming Home.” It is now five years after “Hymn No. 5,” and the soldier’s younger brother is shipping out, leaving a much more chaotic America behind: Drugs and riots are destroying his home city. He has hope, though, that he will return to a better country than he left. The song is as resonant and remarkable as the similarly themed material Marvin Gaye would release the following year. The fact that this song never saw commercial release is more than a little bit telling of the indifferent music industry Hannibal was forced to contend with. Perhaps if he had the support of a label with the prestige and promotional muscle of Motown, the story would be different. Hannibal’s music is classic indie soul at its best. – John Duffy
