WE WON!! Mill Block Blues won the "Coolist Blues Song 2011" award from Big City Rhythm & Blues Magazine.
“This album is essentially James Goode's "book" about cotton-mill workers in McKinney, Texas, in the 1950's and '60s. And it's a masterpiece.”
— Michael Dregni,Vintage Guitar Magazine
“Thanks for sending the Mill Block Blues disc my way. Some first rate performances here and I will certainly be playing this one on my show. Already added it to my i-Pod - the highest honor available to a new release, at least at my house. ;) Thanks again.
