This album is hauntingly beautiful. Such a shame that he died so young from heart failure. John Campbell presents an interesting "talking blues," with a voice that's both compelling and holds the listener's attention with his story telling. As original and lush as his vocals are, it's his music that has always held my attention. and even more so here on One Believer, where he's created an album filled with guitar textures, one that's shimmering, warm, dark as night, and filled with spooky haunting blues that seem to float in the air all around me.
John Allen Campbell (January 20, 1952 – June 13, 1993) was an American blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Campbell was born and grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana. His first group was the Texas-based electric power trio, Junction. Formed in 1973 in Corpus Christi, Texas, the band consisted of John on guitar and vocals, Tim Delaney on bass and vocals, and Jack "Satch" Haupt on drums and vocals. The trio disbanded two years later. Campbell cut his first album titled Street Suite around this same time.

The Elektra debut by the late bluesman John Campbell is a curious affair in more than one respect-despite it's obvious excellence and original voice. The first is that he was signed at all. Clearly in 1990 when Campbell signed his deal, record company executives were still interested inn finding new and original talent and developing them over a period of time. One Believer was outside of virtually every trend on major labels and in pop at the time. Other than Chris Whitley's Living with the Law, it was the only roots record issued on a major label in 1991
