Stereophile Magazine Record to Die For! 

Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the February 2001 Issue of Stereophile!

I Want Jesus to Walk With Me," a traditional gospel song adapted by Eric Bibb, is my favorite cut on this wonderfully tactile disc. "You don't have to be Jewish...," the commercial used to say. This song casts a deep, peaceful spell on me in an almost impossibly human way.The compelling, moving, shockingly present recording is always a joy to listen to, effortlessly establishing that certain atmosphere that (until now) seemed only within the provenance of tubed electronics. Bibb, who works with the much-admired gospel singer Cyndee Peters (to whose appearance on Opus 3's Test CD 4 I so often refer), does a superb job here. A true recording to die for

Created two decades ago by Jan-Eric Persson, this company continues to produce discs of exceptional quality. Persson's two-channel discs are nearly all made by the classic stereo microphone setup described by Alan Blumlein, and the result is a 3-dimensional image that is startlingly revealing

Spirit & The Blues is a real odyssey of Eric's music. Here we find everything from black Mississippi blues to spirituals, ballads, country and even reggae - sometimes with an almost electrified swing, but guaranteed "unplugged" in the finest Opus 3 tradition! Eric has gathered a large number of musicians from rock, folk and blues and, last but not least, "The Deacons" -- a gospel quintet from the USA which was actually formed while this recording was being made.
