'Made in Mississippi' - Living Blues magazine issue 188
With the assistance of Delta legends Pinetop Perkins and Sam Carr, U.K. musicians Mark Cole and Rick Edwards turned their Mississippi pilgrimage into a documented soundtrack.
Using vintage recording techniques, instruments, and amps this CD was recorded in Clarksdale and a raw and basic '50s sound was captured. Cole plays impressive guitar and harp, while Edwards' guitar and earthy vocals add considerable grit. The instrumentals Pickin' With Phil and Train Roll are outstanding. Although not all of their melodies, riffs, and lyrics are fresh, these Delta sons provide an enjoyable and solid effort.Tim Holek
