Jerry Moore - Life Is A Constant Journey Home (Soul)



1. Life Is a Constant Journey Home
2. Drugged
3. Anti Bellum Sermon
4. This Is My Time
5. Ballad of Birmingham
6. Winds of Change
7. Let Go, Reach Out

I cannot get over how amazing this album is. Very little information is available on Moore, who turned street preacher shortly after this recording. The haunting opening track, "Life is a Constant Journey Home", is based on "The Ballad of Birmingham" and the bombing of an Alabama church by the KKK. Each subsequent track has a tale all its own, ranging from Love, the Civil Rights movement, acceptance, and faith. Strangely, all meld together into one beautiful, connected song: "Drugged" talks of Winds of Change, "This is My Time" begins with the words Life is a Constant Journey Home and "Anti Bellum Sermon" urges to Let Go, Reach Out. Moore has a deeply soulful voice and the music ranges from jazzy to soul to acoustic. He certainly has the voice and conviction to insprire and connect with people. All we are left with is this poignantly strong recording. Seven tracks is too short!
