"The most beaufiful album, Mama has a voice like a chain-saw and on this album redefines the depths of despair to which love can lead you. The title track is exquisite, as is How Long and the amazing Pallet On The Floor. Beautiful piano accompanyment creates a marvellous synergy and if anyone can recommend anything as good as this, well, I'll buy them a beer."
"Pallet on the Floor" is worth the cost of the album

"Estella Yancey sings with a sureness and a force that certainly belies her years. Her voice verges on the edge of rawness, but that's perfect for the old songs she sings. Her delivery of "Pallet on the Floor" alone would be worth the price of the album. Curiously there are times when both the quality of her voice and her phrasing are very reminiscent of Jimmy Scott, despite the great difference in the type of music they sing. Listening to this album brings back some of the wonderful moments I had while living in the U.S."
