It is great that you did a George Smith tribute project. I knew George fairly well and I’m sure he’d be thrilled to see that someone so far away remembers and honors his legacy with such care. Blues harp fans should be very excited about this cd and I hope it does well for you and for George’s memory”. Dick Shurman, USA.

Helge Tallqvist is a terrific amplified harp player and a master of the difficult chromatic harmonica. He has a huge tone and blows with passion and intensity. -Bad Dog Blues/ Jeff Harris.
Excellent tone master from Finland with killer band Groovy Eyes. Very impressive. - BlueBeat Music, USA.
Really,Really fine harmonica that shows a real feel for the tradition of the 50s. Good attention to tone, phrasing and attack. Strong band performances throughout. Very impressive. - Brues Iglauer/ Alligator Records, Chicago.
