CD Reviews

Contemporary bluesman
Aaron Manka | arlington, va USA | 12/31/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Studebaker John is an interesting, entertaining musician. He writes, sing, and plays (harmonica and slide guitar) original songs, but with a style that is obviously influenced by the Chicago blues. When friends want an introduction to contemporary blues, I have them listen to Too Tough; it has never disappointed. I recommend checking out Too Tough over the later releases because I think the overall consistency of songs is higher on this album."
Good R&B blues
Bob Davis | Christchurch New Zealand | 02/17/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This was the first major release for Studebaker John on Blind Pig. You will do better to check out his subsequent releases.This is a reasonable good album if you like good old R&B blues. The highlights of the offering are when he plays both harp and guitar. The best tracks are 'Someboby forgot to tell my heart' and 'Boogie walk'. He offers a clean uncomplicated style and seems to suffer from under-exposure. His subsequent albums provide many more highlights."
