Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
Nathan Williams has emerged near the head of the class among contemporary zydeco artists. Steady Rock featured mostly zydeco-tinged versions of blues and R&B tracks, although the cuts "Zydeco Joe" and "Everything on the Floor" are closer in structure and arrangements to straight zydeco.
