Show Of Strength is Michael Burks at his peak, exploding with fierce guitar and soul-charged singing, and shot through and through with the immense strength and spirit of this modern-day blues hero. From the explosive opening of 'Count On You' to the closing strains of Charlie Rich's elegiac 'Feel Like Going Home,' Burks' signature combination of feral yet tuneful guitar work with his gritty vocals provided a searing, emotional autobiography in blues. When he suddenly died at age 54 on May 6, 2012, the world lost a true musical treasure.
'Diamond-hard blues rock and powerhouse blues that strike like a hammer blow.' - Billboard
