THE HOLMES BROTHERS

FEED MY SOUL

2010-03-02

Brothers Sherman and Wendell Holmes, along with drummer Popsy Dixon otherwise known as the Holmes Brothers have been recording together since 1980. In 2008 Wendell faced with what appeared to be incurable cancer and it appears we may have hears the last of their great harmonies. The powerful track “Fair Weather Friend” addresses the feelings how people may run or disappear when hearing about cancer and treating their friends as if they had some kind of plague. With this release, the Holmes Brothers have fed all of our souls with an uplifting platter of Blues & R&B that shows the power of the human spirit. Most songs are originals with the exception of their excellent cover of the Beatles “I’ll Be Back” and the R&B sounds of “Pledging My Love”. Produced by the great Joan Osborne, if this disc does not lift your soul and spirits please seek professional counseling. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
