Reviews;
"It is what it says on the tin - “A Tribute To Robert Johnson”, BRIAN KRAMER does it justice with clear blues acoustic guitar playing and an understanding of traditional blues. His voice is full of emotion and clarity so that every word is heard and the stories behind the songs clearly unfolds.
Sympathetic and skilful production has been used recording live in a studio with no over dubbing, this is an genuine recognition of Robert Johnson delivered by Brian who has passion for traditional blues. Brian's 1932 National pounds out the rhythm demonstrating all the lessons he has learnt from the greats including Junior Wells who was both his friend and mentor putting these skills to great use on the CD. Eleven tracks have been carefully crafted from the opening number 'Phonograph Blues' through to 'Little Queen Of Spades'. The combination of his voice and guitar skills makes this a fine tribute and a must for traditional Blues and Robert Johnson fans alike. Only available through BKBMusic CD is not currently available anywhere except direct through BKB Music and any ordering inquiries can be sent directly to briankramerblues@hotmail.com"

"Brian Kramer probably needs no introduction appearing on the Swedish blues scene for some time now. Here on his latest album, he gives his homage to Robert Johnson with eleven tracks. On some songs, Bert Deivert on mandolin and Mats Qwarfordt on harmonica.
It is a pleasant mix where Kramer is acting solo on most of the tracks, accompaniment appears on four songs.
It is smart thinking of Kramer not to put emphasis on the most prevalent Johnson songs that show up very often changed.
Seems like he has concentrated on selecting those which may not be copied too often.
Add to that he also does his own version of them which makes it all so much better, who can surpass the original. Deivert’s mandolin sits nicely giving a tasteful sound of a material that is more than over 70 years.
One of the better Johnson tributes I've encountered thanks to smart thinking."
-Ingemar Karlsson/Jefferson Blues Magazine Sept. 2011
