Willis Earl Beal: "Take Me Away"

Neo-soul is all the rage right now, so why not take it all the way back to the Delta Blues?  "Throwback" seems like such an ugly word to throw at a quality artist, but Willis Earl Beal is clearly trying to evoke the gritty field recordings of the early 20th century, pure gospel-inspired heartache up in this bitch.

Bonus points for the hand drawn cover art. Buy yourself a beer if you recognized Bob Dylan's Infidel album hanging in a frame on the wall behind Beal and his "enhanced" gf.
