OUT ON THE HIGHWAY - 1992

"TOP RANK AND TOP RATE IN EVERY RESPECT... NOT ONLY IS THIS THE BEST BLUES RECORDING OF RECENT CANADIAN MUSIC HISTORY, BUT JOHN WILSON IS EASILY THE MOST TALENTED BLUESMAN IN CANADA TODAY"

WESTCOAST BLUES REVIEW

"VVVVV OUT OF FIVE... THE BEST BLUES RECORDING TO COME OUT OF CALGARY"

JAMES MURETICH - THE CALGARY HERALD

"AFTER LISTENING TO THIS DISC REPEATEDLY I CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY IT WASN'T CONSIDERED FOR A JUNO AWARD. IT IS, IN MY OPINION, STONGER THAN EVERY OTHER DISC NOMINATED IN THE BLUES CATEGORY. THIS RECORDING IS OVERFLOWING WITH TALENT."
