". "One More Mile to Go" sets the tone, with a weathered voice, and a damn fine
great rocking groove. The jazzy approach to "Do Unto Others" is a danceable song
with excellent vocal support from guest Nadine Rae. Kenny Sparks plays quiet bluesy
guitar lines with excellent driving bass from Charles Adkins. The harmonica solo
that Anthony plays makes you snap your fingers.
"Swamp Dog Shuffle" could not have a better name. The band pushes themselves to exceptional
musical heights. "Hoochie Coochie Man" closes the album and was a fitting tribute
to Muddy Waters. So an excellent album, no bells or whistles, in an atmosphere like
you would want to experience it live. Authentic, and rich. Anthony "Swamp Dog" and
"Blues Allstars" definitely deserve your attention!

"Leading track “One More
Mile To Go” with its rocking groove gets things off to the right start with
Clark’s nicotine-inflected vocals and leading harp lines.
Taking on the role of a producer was a good move for Anthony. Rather than let these
tunes be marred by over-production and unnecessary bells and whistle effects, he
was able to create a live atmosphere as if this band was playing a blues jam on
a Wednesday night. Raw truly sticks to a blueprint of authentic blues and certainly
serves the purpose of making you catch boogie fever.

"Anthony “Swamp Dog”
Clark, blues entertainer, took the roof off the Chef Mac Restaurant last week on
Harford Road with the “Down Home Blues. ”The music, man-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n!
The music was out-of-sight. One of my favorite blues artist, Anthony “Swamp
Dog” Clark, performed with his band. He carried a black case full of harmonicas
of all shapes, sizes and sounds and he was qualified to play them all. His backup
musicians were very gifted and talented in their own right. My favorite tunes they
played were “Down Home Blues” and “Black Drawers.”
