"Armstrong singing undiminished, and possibly better than ever: deeply soulful and dripping with feeling. Blues At The Border is a solid winner".
“'Young Man With The Blues' surely has to be the best original blues song written this year... an absolute gem!”
““This has been a constant in my CD player ever since it appeared””
"Likely one of the year's best, and not to be missed".
"If you ever feel that contemporary blues has lost the narrative edge of the classic canon, listen to this album and have your faith restored."
" Armstrong fires a fast ball right down the middle of where contemporary, electric blues resides. "
"Armstrong redefines the range of contemporary blues. Highly recommended."
