Mighty Sam McCLAIN – Joy and Pain (Live) 1998


This live recording of McClain from a 1997 tour in Germany demonstrates how clearly interconnected the blues, soul, and gospel are. Songs express his love for people, life, and the Almighty, making the message simple yet mountain moving. The title simply states what his voice carries  joy and pain.
