Hard Luck & Trouble exemplifies the blues with Marie Manning’s haunting vocal performance accompanied by the Bishop’s quintessential driving guitar licks. Marie Manning’s sporadically placed claps throughout the tune serve as the rhythmic foundation while she sings.  The Bishop’s guitar playing comes straight from the South and represents his life as juke joint musician and moonshine salesman before from his previous life before joining the Church and exclusively playing Gospel music.
