MORE A FEELING THAN A LIVING - 1995

"NO PRETENSION, NO HISTRIONICS, NO STRAINING, JUST A SMOOTH NATURAL DELIVERY FOR HIS DEEP VOICE AND ONE-IN-A-MILLION ABILITY ON HARMONICA... THIS ARTIST POSSESSES ENOUGH TALENT TO BE CONSIDERED AS ONE OF THE BEST NATIONAL TREASURES IN ANY GENRE"

ANDY GRIGG, WESTCOAST BLUES REVIEW, DECEMBER/JANUARY 1996

"ONE OF THE FINEST BLUES TALENTS I HAVE HEARD IN A LONG TIME, A SUPERB HARMONICA PLAYER, A RICH TONED NATURAL BLUES SINGER, SUPREMELY TALENTED SONGWRITER, AND BLESSED WITH THE COURAGE AND ABILITY TO TAKE CLASSIC MATERIAL AND MOULD IT INTO HIS OWN STYLE"
