Anson Funderburgh is an excellent diplomat for contemporary blues, and for the blues in general. He's accessible enough to hook the new listener, creative enough to be interesting, and entertaining enough to keep people listening. Change in My Pocket consists of 12 tight, well-written tracks, from the opening title song to the precise, high-energy closer "Things Have Changed." Of the material in between, slower songs like "Little Girl" and the sensual "Highway Man" are the high points of the album, though the other songs are strong as well, with some excellent harmonica work from Sam Myers. Although Funderburgh won't necessarily win any points for originality with this album, there are worse things you could have in your stereo at your party on Saturday night. --Genevieve Williams

Best Blues Band in the Country!

"Anson and Sam have done it again! Anson's guitar playing is so classy it brings tears to your eyes! Sam's singing and harmonica are still the best and the band (Pat on Bass, Danny on Drums and the new Piano Player, John Street) are all seasoned pros! You need to own this CD, as well as the rest of the Anson Funderburgh & The Rockets music."
A Place Called Cool

"Somewhere between Mississippi and Texas is a place called Cool. Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets with Sam Myers are among the few remaining residents of this hip little community. "Change In My Pocket," the bands latest effort on Bullseye, provides music fans with quality music that is all too lacking in today's overproducted, rock-influenced blues. The Muddy Waters flavored "Highway Man" is Anson and Sammy at their best but note the tasty piano fills ala Otis Spann offered up by John Street. This band has it all. "You can't be the one for me" is classic Anson and the Rockets with brilliantly simple drumming by Danny Cochran. If you are a fan of the blues this cd has to be part of your collection."

"This wood be a great CD to teach a class on blues and roots music! A perfect example of a band playing TOGETHER. So tight and smooth, great rythm section, tastefully understated guitar solos, and Sams' vocal warmth combined with great production make this one of my favorite blues CDs. What a great Bo Diddly feel on "Willie Jo". A modern classic."
