Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2: “Splendid…. a really really excellent album”

Independent Blues Broadcasters Association: One of the top 12 albums of 2017, October 2017 “Pick of The Month”, charted #3.

Saint FM Blues is Back Show: “Album of the Year”

BluesMagazine.NL:  “Mississippi MacDonald is, despite the moniker, an English bluesman, and a guy with his feet, soul and spirit firmly rooted in the US southern blues music tradition. Joined here by US harp player, Steve Bailey, he has turned out an excellent, searing album that simply rocks and roars along from start to finish……one of those releases that come as a welcome surprise in an overcrowded blues music world these days, with genuinely top-notch writing, musicianship and grasp of just what makes a damn, fine release.”

WA Blues Society: From the opening bars of “I’d Rather Be Blind, Crippled & Crazy,” which is performed as a tribute to O.V. Wright, Mississippi’s stellar vocals shine as do his guitar chops…….Mississippi seamlessly blends his blues with elements of R&B and country making for a unique sound. Very highly recommended
