"An enticing blend of funk, jam, roots, and blues that prove light-hearted and fun, while also being soulful and sincere...the arrangements here seem particularly energetic and sharp, and the playful interchanges... especially between Wiggins and Sol, prove satisfying..." - Home Grown Music Network
"This recording is as real and raw as they come....tight musicianship and lyrics that tug at the soul strings..." - The Jamwich
"This laid back acoustic Piedmont blues influenced track from guitarist / songwriter Sol Roots shows the impact of his history of working with legends such as John Dee Holeman, Cootie Stark, Cool John Ferguson, and Taj Mahal. Drummer Scott Rabino (of Tommy Castro, Johnny Nitro) provides a solid back beat and bassist Andreas Holmstrom locks into a rock steady groove." - Advance Tribune
“If there were such thing as a blues hit, this would be one. Love it.” – Bill Wax Bluesville, Sirius XM Satellite Radio / WPFW
“Great song, great groove, great message. Love the soulful guitar playing, Sol Roots brings something real to the table.” – Tim Duffy, President, Music Maker Relief Foundation.
"A powerful take on this traditional tune from one of the Mid-Atlantic's funkiest guitarists. Sol's arrangement tactfully captures the dark timbre of Phil Wiggins' original version, while at the same time fanning the flame with a renewed vigor. Sol Roots brings new light to the message in the lyrics with his smooth, soulful vocals. The inclusion of Wiggins on the recording really makes the song hit home and tug at the heartstrings." – Editor, Ragin’ Randy Entertainment
