* From the Lisa Walker Benefit Concert, "Well done Delta Blues with a wink and a grin, these guys are too much fun."

Pure magic ride back to the good ole' days
First of this kind I've heard and I like it lots. Good sounds, great lyrics, fun to play over and over. If you want to try this style for the first time, this is the one to buy! Right mix of raspy blues sounds with great guitar playing. A winner in my book.

Gerhard Pilcher

Great, must have, fun, old time blues
Gets played over and over in my house and in my car ... kids love it too. Great cover of mostly traditional blues with a sprinkle of more contemporary tunes. Fun, like you're at the gig, not studio polished.

Frank Cahill

Great 20's and 30's blues...lots of fun!
The blues of the 20's and 30's isn't heard much these days. The CD, with plenty of these tunes, is great fun. Play it when you got 'da blues...you'll feel better.

Robson Lelles

Oh man, those guys can play the blues!!!!
It's so good when music flows naturally from the heart. First time I played "That'll Never Happen No More" at home, my friends asked me to keep on playing it non-stop. They have never expected to listen to such an authentic stuff until then. You'd better listen to what I say: Those guys can play the blues!
