Darrell Mansfield – Higher Power – 1979

Darrell’s first solo album was a good start to his blues and rock career. With songwriting by Denny Correll on “Children Don’t Run” and drums by John Mehler throughout, this is a solid work that stands the test of time well. Darrell’s signature harmonica sound is present on a lot of tracks here, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg that is his legendary harp playing.

Skip Konte (of Three Dog Night) plays keys and adds some percussion.

The song “That’s Alright” makes is debut on this record. It remained a signature track throughout his career and this original version is great to hear again.
