"The Mystic Mile exhibits Robben Ford's precision at playing smooth sophisticated blues. Ford sound is very elegant, modern and unique. This cd may be one of his best, demonstrating his song writing abilities as well as skill with the guitar. Most of the songs are written by Ford and they work cohesively to give the whole cd a somewhat "mystic" sound. The title cut, which wraps up the cd of 10 tracks,is perhaps the most mystical. It creates a vision of a mystic who is watching us, with a "strange sense of humor." Of the cover songs Politician written in '68, by Jack Bruce and Peter Brown is still true and relevant song today of political people trying to work both sides. If you like a more sophisticated blues with strong guitar work, this is a cd for you."

"I love this CD. Well, except for a few tracks that Ford didn't sing or write, that is. Sorry Roscoe. Maybe it's a good thing Robben dumped you later on!Ford's guitar bites and scratches doing songs like Big Black Car and Misdirected, and sweetly laments when doing songs like Mystic Mile or Do the Right Thing (Anne's song). Blue Line actually is a great band, but Ford's voice is better suited to the material presented here. I like his voice better than Beck's anyways.Give this one some cycles in your player and you'll enjoy it as much as I do.Peace Out"
Some of the best modern blues guitar you'll ever hear.

"There are several great cuts on this album, and some incredible playing throughout. In particular, Worried Life Blues sports one of the most overwhelmingly awesome blues solos you'll ever hear. That one cut is worth the price of admission."
