Album Notes
"This is a delightful album .... great songs, excellent musicianship and production."
-Bruce Cameron Radio 2MCE-FM Australia

This is the best album I have EVER heard. Not since a few cuts on Ry Cooder's Jazz album have I been so in love with listening. This is great, great, great music!!! Oh, my, goodness. Words fail me. Astonishing! Peter Berryman

"All in all, this is already one of my favorite CD's ever. Every track grabbed me on first listen which almost never happens. I think that this is the music that Ernie has been meant to play forever." Jim Kownacki

“Man, I love Ernie Hawkins. Each disc impresses me more and more. There are very few individuals who play this stuff and make it real. Fingerstylist Hawkins is one of the great joys of guitar. He is plain and simple, a master. John Heidt Vintage Guitar

“Ernie Hawkins is an important link in the unbroken chain of blues and gospel artists. His guitaristry and love of the style is incomparable. From the Rev. Gary Davis into the future with his own style Ernie is one of the special ones!” Jorma Kaukonen
