This tribute to his late father was chosen as the clear winner of my Best of 2010 list. Each track is thoughtfully constructed, and the man sure has a knack with a catchy, funky riff. He’s added some energy to some of the tracks, but there’s a sombre edge on the whole affair, the lyrical themes reminding us why we’re here. Sure, it’s a typical Johnson record but, then again, it’s also so much more. Beautiful.
