Armed with technique to spare but never exhibitionistic, guitarist Mike Henderson leads his Bluebloods through a mix of originals and covers on their second album. "Tears Like a River" is a spellbinding performance where Henderson displays great sensitivity to, and natural fluency with, the musical exclamations of drummer John Gardner, string bassist Glenn Worf (cowriter of the tune with Henderson), and pianist John Jarvis (the former Rod Stewart hired gun replacing Reese Wynans in the Bluebloods). Playing the harmonica, another instrument he controls with ease, Henderson brings a similar kind of knife-edge tension to "All My Money's Gone" and "Slow Your Motor Down," two more outstanding Henderson-Worf compositions. It's only a matter of time, however long getting the word out on Thicker Than Water and undertaking a coast-to-coast tour takes, before blues America realizes Mike Henderson & the Bluebloods are one of the sharpest bands anywhere. --Frank-John Hadley

"This is as good a blues CD in this genre as you can buy. Mike Henderson writes great songs. They would be classics on anyone elses CD. There is not one bad track on this CD. The sound is
'GRUNGE BLUES'. A slightly dirty sound like the STONES suits perfectly as a vehicle for MIKE's superb guitar playing ( he plays great slide as well ) throughout the CD. The vocals are
excellent as well and the lyrics are better than most other offerings in this genre. All 3 MIKE HENDERSON CD's are worth buying and are sure to get your next party hopping."

"Awesome CD! Out of the couple hundred CD's in my collection, this is definitely in the TOP 10. These guys don't sound like anybody else. The original songs are terrific, they make the covers sound like their own. In fact, buy "First Blood", too. Both are fantastic. I'd love to see these guys in person."
