The first song, "The Good Luck You're Having" features a young blues master named Joe Bonamassa on vocals and guitar. Former "Late Night with David Letterman" guitarist Hiram Bullock performs vocals and guitar duties on "The Walls Came Tumbling Down". This would be his last recorded work as he passed away during the production of this album. Lead vocals on two of the ten tracks on this CD are performed by female artists. The first song "I Don't Want To Be With Nobody But You" is sung by Joan Osbourne. She gives the song a bluesy/r&b feel to the song. The other song sung by a female singer is "Slippin' Into Darkness" by Grammy Award winner Lisa Fischer. Her singing experieince gives this song a more pop/r&b flavor to it. Johnny Rzeznick, of the Goo Goo Dolls, does a "spot on" remake of U2's hit "All I Want Is You".
