Apparently rock and roll really IS the devil's music. At least, that's what John Hornor Jacobs says in SOUTHERN GODS, an audiobook so good it's practically sinful. Burly Bull Ingram is roaming around backwoods Arkansas in 1951 in search of a missing record company representative when he finds someone who’s more devil than man. Ramblin’ John Hastur's music rouses something primal, something evil, in those who hear it on a pirate radio station. Jacobs's writing and Eric Dove's performance of this book are so sublime that you can almost hear the demon music. Dove slips into ethnic speech rhythms and poor black dialects so completely that the listener is transported to another time and place. This is the whole package: good writing, good plot, and flawless delivery. M.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
