“This is the fourth album from the long-time San Francisco Bay area Blues-rock four-piece, and it’s a good ‘un. Leader and guitarist David is a versatile and highly accomplished player, but all the individual band members have achieved formidable reputations on their local scene. Listening to this accomplished set, it is easy to understand why. If you want to imagine what rock superstars The Eagles would sound like singing the Blues, try ‘Who’s Loving You?’. A little deep-soul maybe? Go for ‘Say Goodbye’ then. There’s old-time rock’n’roll, too, a little supercharged rockabilly, a Jimi Hendrix styled psychedelic rocksoul hybrid, a gospel into powerhouse Blues-rock ballad called ‘This Time’ and even a gentle, wistful singer-songwriter styled elegy for a closer. And, of course, the Blues pure and simple - the eight and a half minutes of ‘I’m Gonna Quit You’ is enough to convince most readers, but there are other examples, too, in this very worthwhile release.”
