All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Harmonica player and vocalist Sugar Blue isn't a singer who doubles on harp; he's an extraordinary instrumentalist who's also a quality vocalist. Blue covers tunes by Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, James Cotton and Sonny Boy Williamson II classics, presents a decent, if disposable version of The Rolling Stones' "Miss You," and adds the good-natured original "Country Blues," co-written with his guitarist Motaoaki Makino. But it's those harmonica lines and phrases that make the CD. One of Alligator's best contemporary albums in a long time.

    A really enjoyable powerful CD!!!

    I was blown away by Sugar Blue's virtuosity. Sugar Blue just kicks it out, tune after tune. In my mind, Sugar Blue could easilly be mentioned along with the likes of Little Walter, Paul Butterfield, and Charlie Musselwhite, not to mention James Cotton and the Sonny Boy Williamsons (Rice Miller and John Lee), He has the talent and energy of a blues superstar.
