"I loved Wild Night Out and hoped Drive To Survive would be close. Wow, it's great. Most of the songs run with that trademark driving beat, the one that gets your head nodding as soon as it comes on. On their cut You Got Work To Do, you make a double take and check your CD player because you know you put on ZZ Top by mistake. Cool Guitars is kind of silly but you find yourself humming it during the day. One cut is out of place, Burford's Bop is a throwback to the 40's. I didn't care for it but on the other hand, it shows off their emmense talents, and I think thats what they wanted to do. They do a great modern version of the instrumental Apache. You'll recognize some beats you have heard before in other songs in a few of their cuts, but it doesn't detract from the basic raw power of this CD."

"This is my second favourite Jimmy Thackery album (after 'Wild Night Out'). A truly great guitarist with a passable voice. It is usually magic when Jimmy is in his solos. 'Slow Down Baby' is the highlight where for once his singing compliments his playing and then he just plays you onto another planet! The album is slightly uneven with (as usual) some duds such as Apache, Burford's Bop which while technically good, lack the excitement of say, 'Rub On Up' or 'You Got Work To Do'."
Classic recording from a great blues guitarist

"As on any other Jimmy Thackery/Nighthawks recording,Jimmy has 4 or 5 great songs,except on this one they are pretty much all great. I love "Cool Guitars","Rub On Up", "Drive To Survive",. Very good live performer as in Billy Blues, Houston Texas"
