“The first cut "Second Hand" is a boogie shuffle that sets the pace. The title of the second song "Butt Kickin Mary" is a better indication of what this CD is all about, with it's backup which includes barrel house piano...Everhart has the strong growly voice of a Blues Mama... The feeling in Everhart's voice makes this CD a solid entry in the field.”
“Mary has a rich vibrato and the ability to get down and dirty with gritty Blues melodies, Her vocals and stinging guitar lead Blues tracks as well as steamy ballads.”
“A Blues woman that makes you think of the days of Billie Holiday but with a charge of electricity in her fingertips lets you know she's a child of the 70's.”
"Thornton's voice shines through!...A voice that is clear and seemingly effortless...she also throws in some bluesy, Koko Taylor- style gravel to good effect"...
“A brilliant Album!... Mary has a great voice and a knowledge of music that shows through in her CD... This is one album that you HAVE to get!”
