“Impressive energy and intensity...roaring slide guitar...highly enjoyable collection of modern electric blues centered around Sadler's muscular guitar playing. Warmly recommended.”
“Damn, Dave! Nice stuff there brother!”
"Some albums you should own solely because of a single. On "Matchbox", "Fourth Street Ruckus" is worth all the money...clearly a smash hit!"
"A festive CD of a seasoned player with a nice full sound, which will remind you of the sound of Jimmy Thackery..."
"All-out, full throttle...seriously intense guitar work...totally rocks. Good old smoking blues"
“Sadler respects the originals but he is not afraid to re-interpret them or take them in a different direction. As a result, he successfully breathes new life into each track.”
"With "Matchbox" Dave Sadler...puts down a milestone in his career. With his slide guitar he explains bridges between related genres like blues, rock and jazz."
“Fourth Street Ruckus..all hell is breaking loose...leading the way with relentless guitar playing, Dave Sadler and the band are kickin' ass.”
"Coolness goes beyond words to experience!"
“With a broad range of bluesrock, jazzy ballads, reggae and funk, this album sought blues inspiration from many places. Arkansas/Mississippi, Louisiana/Texas and Chicago-influences merge into a homogeneous whole, in which Dave Sadler, guitar man from Arkansas, feels at home like a fish in the water.”
"On Fade to Blue, Arkansas blues singer Dave Sadler offers up an eclectic mix of 16 guitar driven songs based in the blues/rock tradition of the Midwest. He’s an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and clearly knows what he’s doing on the guitar...musicianship to stand apart from the crowd..."
"Dave Sadler designed this album with solid and really versatile musical building stones that leave a colorful impression from 'Fade To Blue' till 'Blue Reggae'."
"Sadler also includes a slew of instrumental numbers on the album which showcase his mastery of the guitar. As well, he gets by with a little help from his friends such as prominent saxophonist, Dan Cipriano, whose playful exchanges on “Can’t Take It With You”..an instant listener’s delight"
