"The very best track on the CD happens not to be an instrumental, however.  Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come” features guest vocalist Diane Blue and her soulful vocal delivery backed by fantastic Hammond B3 from Limina and Earl’s inspired guitar makes this a stirring rendition of this song that is quite possibly the best I’ve ever heard."  - Mark Pucci, Making a Scene
