"If you even think you might like jump blues, you will love James Harman and the incredible musicians (guitar players in particular) he has assembled. All his CD's are great. This one just might be the best!"

"slip this greasy pickle slice in your cd player and behold, barbecue sauce and beer pour from your speakers as you are transported in some indeterminate blues-time (1950s? 1980s, according to the menu) to a texas roadhouse with a live band! a friendly texan with high hair, two-tone shoes, and a ten-hole harp in his mouth wraps his arm around you and bids you welcome, handing you extra napkins to sop up the excess hair oil and barbecue sauce you will encounter. this is james "icepick" harman, and he proceeds to squonk some cold harp for your pleasure while backed up by a tangy blues guitar. the menu says these are previously unreleased songs from the '80s, but who's to date that old-fashioned texas sound? long as harman's around, these blues are here to stay, too, and that's fine by me."
