"This is for 'old school' fans; who just want to hear a band of great players making music, instead of the flavor of the month."

"I first remember hearing Harvey Mandel during his stint with the Bluesbreakers. About thirty seconds into his first solo, I thought, "Who is THIS? And where did he find those licks?" Since then, I haven't been particularly moved by Mandel's solo work. Unfortunately, his vocal skills and songwriting abitities just aren't on the level of his amazing guitar skills and his best work has been as a soloist on other people's projects. This CD is the exception. Good solid songwriting, and the singing, if not moving, fits the songs well. Plus some truly amazing solos, using scales other people haven't found yet. If you don't have a Mandel CD, this is the one to buy."

"This is mostly back-to-the-roots blues but I really only enjoyed one song - "Shotgun Man"; the guitar solos are truly amazing!"
