"In short, I like this CD, primarily because I am the artist!I would like to inform anyone it may concern that this particular CD of mine and my brother Gregg's has sold an estimated 220,000 copies world-wide since its release in late 1994.The problem, however, our original recording contract notwithstanding, is that even in light of the fact that I'm proud of these sales numbers and am all for easier access to music for the masses, I am and have been for thirty+ years a full-time musician and my brother and I have NEVER RECEIVED A RED PENNY FOR OUR CONTRACTED WORK ON THIS CD!!!... It's tough enough to make a living in this dog-eat-dog profession and it certainly doesn't help when those responsible for paying you seem to "take a hike" to parts unknown!Other than the above, enjoy the CD folks - it's not your fault!Tim Brooks"
Lord knows it's not a perfect world but here's a perfect lp!

"These Guys ROCK and RULE! This Cd contains all the ingredients for what should be thought of as a "Chart Busting" record but it flew to low under the radar and did not receive the publicity and push it deserved but DO NOT let it pass YOU by! It's all there for your listening pleasure. Sad, slow blues to make you cry and hard, fast blues to make you grin! "Made From Scratch," a ferocious lesson in slide guitar in less than 3 quick minutes, takes you back to a day when NOBODY made better biscuits then your granma! You have eaten biscuits and you have heard slide guitar: NOW HEAR THIS! Following that, "Peaches Are Sweeter" drips w/some fine fingerpickin' and check out the soulful sounds of that freight train runnin' down the frets of that '64 Gibson SG! To end this blues excursion, "No Cover Charge" is that sad, slow blues I promised ya earlier.In those smokey, understated vocals is a 400 page novel that ends in just over four minutes. This is the one to listen to when you're sitting in the driveway at 3 am and you know she ain't lettin' you in the door!
The three songs named are the holy trinity for me but there's not a bad cut on the album and without giving anything more away, you are in for more than a few incredibly pleasant surprises! For MaXiMuM listening pleasure, play at MaXiMuM VOLUME though not at three in the morning while sitting in your driveway! Enjoy the blues as played by two good ol' boys, Tim and Gregg Brooks, a.k.a. "THE BROTHERS BROOKS!""
