"Incredible! This is how I see life. If you wanna feel the blue's, I mean really feel the blues. This recording here will get you. Death valley blues is incredible, the most powerfull blues song ive ever heard. The guitar work is far above stevie ray, or johnny winters or even B.B. King. No disrespect, I more than enjoy all of the above. But this is just a spellbound recording. Let it speak for itself and pick this up please."

"If you're looking for unadulatrated blues played by rock musicians, you can't do much better than this. These guys made their music without the jazz impulse of Cream or the expermental edge of Paul Butterfield,
The album has a live, mysterious sound--completely unlike the clean production of modern blues records-as if your hearing the music standing in a dimmly lit alley outside a small club. Concurently, this music has a scrumptiously dangerous, dark sexuality to it. When the singer sings "I'll save my love for you" it is a threat as well as a vow. Stings bend all over the place, almost to the point of being atonal at times, and this adds to the shady mystequie of the album. this cat really is black.
The playing is excellent, by a band that really understands how to create the gritty mood of Chicago Blues. With a name like Black Cat Bones, what else would you expect. Essential for any blues collection."
