Tad Robinson, now located in suburban Indiana after a stay with guitarist Dave Specter's Bluebirds on the Chicago blues scene, is a serious candidate for crowning as the most commanding white soul-blues singer since the late Eddie Hinton made his royal presence known in the '70s. "Since You've Been Gone" inches along with the singer trying to make sense of loss, with only the sweet, economical guitar of ex-Mighty Flyer Alex Schultz offering solace. The native New Yorker glides up to let syllables fly when enunciating the heartbreaking words of "No Exit Blues," and his confident tenor voice aches with real feeling when sizing up everyday life in "Another Song, Another Day." He's also a superlative harmonica player, his prose crisp and lively on many songs here, and he has an uncommonly intelligent and resourceful soloist and rhythm player in Schultz. The other players--bassist Harlan Terson, keyboardist Kevin McKendree, drummer Jon Hiller and, on two tracks, a horn section--stay alert to Robinson without drawing too much attention to themselves. --Frank-John Hadley
From one artist to another.

"There are a lot of practitioners of Chicago Blues and Tad Robinson is a very welcome addition to the list. Growing up in New York City, he got the Blues bug, eventually moving to Chicago in the mid-1980's. In Chicago he played on a regular basis in some of the city's best clubs. He spent time in bands with Dave Spector and in Big Shoulders before striking out on his own.This, his second Delmark release, shows us that Tad Robinson is a force to be reckoned with, both as a singer and as a harmonica player. His singing is reminscent of the great Soul singers of the 60's and his harmonica playing shows that he's learned an awful lot from folks like Junior Wells and other Chicago Blues harmonica masters.I'd definitely recommend that you give this CD a good listen."

"tad robinson is a great vocalist in the same vain as otis clay mighty sam mclain who can combine soul and blues all in one. eight of the twelve songs are original with alex schultz on guitars. most of the songs are umptempo with a dash of low down dirty blues mixed in for good measure"
