Sharon's got her political agenda straight on this one – working with heavy heavy backings from the Dap-Kings on a hip message-oriented cut that ranks with the best of the early 70s! The groove's overflowing with tight wah wah guitar, topped off by some nice chromatic Willie Hutch-like work – all in service of Sharon's fierce vocals in the lead! "This Land" is a remake of the classic – taken to soul territory with a slow funk groove that's outta site – and in a style that we're sure Woody Guthrie would have approved himself!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
