Take It On Faith
Gary and Dale Rossington are back with Take It On Faith. Featuring Gary Rossington’s signature electric blues and slide sound and his wife’s strong voice, this is a 12-song CD celebrating redemption and love in all its permutations. There are torchers like “Should Have Known” and the pretty acoustic ballad “Take It On Faith,” featuring some pristine Rossington acoustic slide. There’s the big piano gospel number “Light A Candle.” Delbert McClinton lends his harmonica to the honky tonkin’ “Dance While Your Cookin’.” Dale Rossington gets nice and nasty knowing she’s been done wrong on “Something Fishy. ”
On this album, we get well-crafted tunes in a southern rock blues mix. The Rossingtons get in and out fast on these dozen. They say what they have come to say, Dale Rossington belts out the stories in a voice that has grown lower but certainly more interesting with age, and we hear Gary Rossington wail round the solid backing of his players in a way we haven’t heard him do since the golden old days of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd.~ Ralph Greco.
