"Thanks to mbernocchi I picked up this CD, and I was pleasantly surprised. Living in Houston I have seen Forsyth's name around town at various venues, however never ventured out to check him out since his music was unknown to me. Man, have I been missing out!! This is truly some of the greatest stuff I have heard in a long time. Although his band has changed since this album, they still go all out. Forsyth has a great voice, plays an awesome harp, and his chops will surely get your attention too. This CD is worth every cent. Buy it!!"
A hidden jewel.

"If you arrived here a blues "god" must have guided you. This is one of the most unknowns "awesome" blues albums ever published in the history of contemporary music. Guy Forsyth and his band decided to go public for the first time with this live recording and the result couldn't have been better. Within all the debut albums that I know this is by far the most exiting one. Not only you can feel the atmosphere, the electricity, the excitement and the feeling that must have been pervading the venue in which this record was recorded, you can even smell the sweat, the smoke and the alcohol that must have been present in a huge quantity that night in the theatre! The energy that Guy Forsyth and his band unleash throughout their entire performance is almost unbelievable. The band rocks from start to finish in an impressive sequence of original songs penned by Guy himself and covering two blues classics: "19 Years" (a.k.a. "she is nineteen years old") a Jimmy Oden song made famous by Muddy Waters and "Mr. Luck" a Jimmy Reed classic. Guy Forsyth prove here to be, despite his young age, a very mature and strong songwriter, an impressive talented slideplayer and harmonica wizard but most of all a fantastic singer and a true storyteller. While Rich Chilleri on drums and Rob Douglas on bass provide a solid and precise rhythm section, Keith Bradley on guitar share the centre of the stage with Guy Forsyth in a real "guitar" roller coaster that will take your breath away. Guy Forsyth is continuing his carrier releasing very good album (such as "Steak" that I strongly suggest you should check out), however from my point of view this is his best effort so far. Just pick it up, you will never regret it!"
One of the best voices I've ever heard

"One of the best voices coupled with incredible songwriting, harmonica, and slide playing. Texas blues that not only moves but grooves. Get this along with the other Guy Forsyth CDs. Worth the investment."
