FISTFUL OF MERCY

Fistful of Mercy

2010-10-25

Ben Harper, Joseph Arthur and Dhani Harrison (George's son) form the latest super-group in a band they call Fistful of Mercy. It all began when Harper and Harrison came over to help Arthur on a new record and that gathering turned into a creative session that produced not only a new record, but a new group. The acoustic harmonies (both vocally and guitar-oriented) are exquisite -- a hip version of a generation earlier (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and The Traveling Wilburys -- which included Dhani's dad). The title track, "Restore Me" and "With Whom You Belong" are very fine, but there are inspired moments throughout. "30 Bones" is a gorgeous instrumental. I hope this trio isn't a one-time venture. 10/10 Michael J. R-Alternative
