“The hardest thing about writing this review has been trying not to repeat all the superlatives I used up with 2016’s Sargasso … more fine songwriting, more great playing, more excellent recording and a really good listen.  Thoroughly recommended” -- Fatea

" ... magnificent songs ... killer harmonies ..." -- Stephen Foster, East Anglian Daily Times

"Seek out a copy, you won't be disappointed" -- Tony Bell, Grapevine
