If you didn’t know any better, you’d be surprised to learn that the kindly gentleman on the cover of Living On Mercy happened to be one of the greatest Soul songwriters still living. Dan Penn wrote some fantastic songs that are in the Soul canon: “I’m Your Puppet,” and “The Dark End Of The Street” but two of them. Living On Mercy is his latest release, and it finds him in superb voice, a master of his craft with few equals. R&B, Soul, Blues Rock–he does it all. We’re most fond of “Edge Of Love,” as perfect a seductive contemporary Blues Rock number as you could find. If you don’t instantly picture a dark and smoky club when you hear it–well, you know what you need to do when COVID finally passes.
