Hard Hitting Blues from Menphis Review

by John Dougan

...Gentlemanly, well-played blues that suffers from covering songs so indelibly linked with their creators (Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy," Freddie King's "It's Too Bad") that the band never develops its own identity. Vocalist/guitarist Ben Wilson acquits himself quite nicely with his fluid, melodic lead playing. Unfortunately, it never helps the band rise above the level of average.
