First-rate album of bluesy rock from British singer and songwriter known for his slide-bottleneck guitar work. This album and his next two were issued on mainstream labels with quality production and arrangements that make for a professionalism not often seen in Christian rock. Sunny Side Of The Street as I understand it is his first lp as a believer and it’s the grittiest of the bunch. Strong ‘70s Eric Clapton impressions throughout, coupled with a few folky rural moods courtesy of mandolin, banjo and fiddle, Female backing vocals in spots, sometimes with light gospel influences. Bluesy cover of the title song. Haworth originals include ‘Good Job’, ‘Pick Me Up’, ‘Dance’, ‘Peace Of Mind’, ‘Give All You’ve Got To Me’, ‘Heaven Knows’ and ‘Thank The Lord”. Good jammin’ on “Used”. Never flashy despite his obvious instrumental talents. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
