Darryl Purpose – Travelers’ Code

Travelers’ Code, Darryl’s third CD, is as colourful as the man himself. Darryl was once recognized as the World’s top blackjack player and is an avid peace activist. Darryl’s peace march took him across the U.S and on to Russia which culminated in the first-ever, outdoor stadium rock concert in the former Soviet Union, featuring Bonnie Raitt, Santana, James Taylor and Darryl’s band, Collective Vision.

Travelers’ Code becomes part of you, the baritone voice and smoothly proficient finger-style guitar, gently shines through especially on: “Mr Schwinn”, a simply crafted song about the sadness of an unfulfilled love, and the “The Last Great Kiss of the 20th Century”. He also knows how to pack a heavy emotional punch as the travelling song, “Child of Hearts”, demonstrates. Darryl lives his whole life “For the story”. What makes the album so special, is the connection between singer and listener. It is one of the strongest albums I’ve heard for a long time.
