“On "The Levee," Petey manages to wrap his arms around the incredible diversity of the blues. On this entirely original set, Hop lays down country blues, jazz blues, folk blues, stride, shuffle, surf, and rock'n roll. Produced by legendary, Duke Robillard. Petey Hopkinson (vox/guitar), Nick Longo-drums, Anthony Candullo-bass, Chris DiFrancesco-sax, Ian Bennett-sax/harp, Jeremy Baum-keyboards, Duke Robillard-guitar. Petey Hop moves me the most when he extends the perimeter, when he adds something new and unique. Take the lyrics to "My God." In this Dylanesque romp," Hop laments God's inaction and lack of visibility... In "Porter," the lyrics wind their way into complex territory...On the jazzy, "Why Should I Complain," once again the lyrics sparkle."Panic At The Beach" harkens back to the Ventures and Sixties' surf instrumentals. Hop absolutely shreds... Petey shines on more traditional fare as well...Hop captures the essence of "the blues." Go see Petey live...”
