Popmatters review – really, you couldn’t ask for much more could you?
A final encore of â€œBig White Gateâ€ caps off the evening with more of the bluesy vibe that gives Potter the impression of being seasoned beyond her years. The song starts off with a gospel-ish intro that features Potter on organ and Tournet on slide and sets the mood for catharsis. Potter calls to the heavens as she sings, â€œSaint Peter wonâ€™t you open up the big white gate/ Cause I heard about forgiveness and I hope it ainâ€™t too late/ I ainâ€™t no holy roller but you go tell your king/ That all the folks up in heaven might like to hear me sing.â€
Music fans can count their blessings; it looks like Potter is just getting started here on Earth.
“Gettin’ In Tune” > “Sinking Man”
- another newish original in “Sinking Man” (referred to as “Man Overboard” in the downloads – do we have an official name?)
