“(The Ted Vaughn Blues Band) album should carry a health warning as it is certainly loud and takes no prisoners...If this doesn't get you on your feet, nothing will. Excellent gruff vocal by Ted Vaughn and some fiery lead guitar by Clay "Bone" King. This is an excellent rocking blues album that thunders along from start to finish and is pure entertainment !”
"The Blues Harp is played with a real vibrancy by Ted Vaughn and Clay "Bone" King burns everything down to ashes with some searing guitar work. A giddy romp and a really enjoyable listen with rootsy blues that grab you in a dizzy spell of joy and some down n' dirty playing."

"( The Ted Vaughn Blues Band ) has that different edge...a breath of fresh air."
“The music itself is an amazing blend of no holds barred Rhythm and Blues, classic Saloon Jazz with a dash of Classic Rock. The musicianship of all the players involved is equally as impressive. The rhythm groove (Bass/Drums) is as thick as a brick. Top to bottom this unit is rock solid... Kudos goes out to the slamming harp and guitar by Vaughn and company, but the most impressive thing is the impressive vocal persona and sizzling harp performances from Mr. Vaughn himself. His harmonica skills are to die for and his vocal delivery is spot on for the genre. No doubt these guys are a total riot to check out live around Southern Oregon and beyond...The music is nitty-gritty, rock solid, heavy and consistent.”
“Nominated "CD of the Year" "A real barnburner."”
