The Best- 'nuff Said!
Mark Cloutier plays The Blues better than anybody. Period.
His intensity, passion, and committment to his music is evident in every note he plays and this CD is an excellent display of his awesome talent.
BUY IT!!!!!!

Artificial Earth (Jim Rustemeyer)

Mark Cloutier!
There aren't many guys who play like Mark. He plays from his heart, not prone to the plank-spanking guitar histrionics you hear from a lot of the players these days, he doesn't mess with the tone much, just plugs it in and plays the shit out of it, which I think is much more honest than covering it up under a tons of amp modeling and reverb and crap. You're hearing truth. That's the bottom line. And Mark Cloutier plays that truth better than anyone.


Rob Grant

Mark Cloutier
I can tell you....Mark is one of the BEST down to earth guitarists on the scene. I think of him as Mr. Strat. If you're looking for that raw natural Fender Strat...gutsy tone and playing, Mark is THE MAN!! Super guy and a SUPER Player :-)

Bob Forbes

Beyond the Bluesphere
Another killer selection of Blues by a dedicated guitarist. Mark lives the genre on this CD - fantastic musicianship! Gotta have it!!

Bob Nadeau

Brother in Blues
I have been in that living room and attended many gigs throughtout central and northern New York many times over the past 8 years or so with Mr. Cloutier cranking on those guitars. Had the pleasure of recording Barroom Blues and Blue Collar Blues when Mark was with the Dirty Pool Blues Band. Theses are no BS, stright from the floor, and Mark at his live best!! He's moved on now and what you're hearing is just the early rumblings of Mount Cloutier ready to erupt. I have always known he has had 15 to 20 years of new music just waiting to burst out and now he can let it all loose. During the cabin sessions, we could expect 2-3 new Cloutier tunes each session that few had heard before. From Original style Blues to Hendrix/SRV and beyond with a sprinkle of country style every so often. I want to thank all Mark's friends, Collaborators and fans who are helping to get his talent and writing out there. But don't be fooled.....his bag also contains some Cloutier vocals but that's a secret. Love ya Bro and Congratulations on your first solo disc!!!

Nigel Potter

Blues And Beyond
I have become a HUGE fan of Mark's work since the early days when he was guitarist within the Dirty Pool band.
On the indie scene it is widely known just how stunning Mark is as a guitarist.
I myself have compared him in playing and passion to that of Jimi Hendrix,something I VERY rarely ever do.
This collection represents one of the finest power blues one could ever hope for.
If you are a fan of any of the influences Mark list,then GRAB this album now,because this man is going places and this is your chance to be in on the ground floor of a stunning artist's future career.
HIGHLY reccomended!!

Global Trancemission (Peter C)

5 Star Blues
I have to give the maximum of 5 stars for this album.
I have listened to Blues and collected it for 40 years and when you play this album you will find that original spirit that started with the electric blues in the 50's and 60's and carried on through to today.
The Strat and a hot valve overdrive and nothing else is a potent weapon in the hands of Mark C.
You will hear the influences of SRV, Hendrix ,Johnny Winter and Walter Trout on the bluesrock tracks but also you will hear Freddie King,Albert King and T Bone Walker in here too.....but most of all you will hear a new master Mark Cloutier.

Blake Tobias

Channelling the Greats
Mark is an awesome blues blues/rock player and there is no question about that. His spirit appears to directly channel in great players such as SRV and Hendrix. Incredible style and character in this superb effort. Buy it now!
