"No other harp player sounds like Mark Ford, period. Comparisons: faster than Popper, as inventive with harp as Jeff Beck is with guitar, as capable of melody and time signature magic as Dave Brubeck and as capable of smashing your eardrums as Ted Nugent. Yeah, you guessed it. I like this guy--and this is some of his best, most inventive material. I use this collection of tunes to break my friends of all their preconceptions about what a 10 hole harp is and what it's capable of sounding like. If you love blues harp, or if you love jazz, or if you love balls to the wall flash rock'n'roll this album has some material you just ought not to miss hearing. Be brave, buy this CD and then you can impress your friends with your discovery. My favorite tunes? The stunning remakes of Little Walter's *Mellow Down Easy*, and Canned Heats *On the Road Again*, Ain't Got Dough and...oh heck...it's hard to pick faves on this one. There isn't a bad tune on the thing."

"This is without doubt Marks best work,every song is tastefully performed. I have listened to it so much that i will soon need to purchase another. I also recommend The Charles Ford Band on the Arhoolie label recorded in 1972 when Mark was only 16.Marks older brother Patricks band"The Ford Blues Band" is outstanding.Check out EVERYTHING they have out.I have them all and play them all the time.Enjoy!!"

"Mark has been wowing audiences in the Bay Area with his instrumental technique for many years. This album features his stunning rock harmonica with effortless execution. Every harp solo tells a story. Mark is supported by a solid rhythm section headed by his brother Robben on guitar. I can't give this five stars because there is something not quite on the money with Marks vocals. Heartfelt, passionate and well written but a little 'pitchy' at times. If you're a harp player or fan of the instrument this CD is a must have."
