John Tams, multi award winning producer of The Blast says “Bob Fox has rightly occupied high office in the ranks of great North Eastern singers and the decision to reduce the division of labour to it’s barest, a painstakingly devoted singer and magnificent guitarist, and a ‘bloke behind the glass’ was one of the best experiences of over forty years of recording. This is Bob Fox holding his ground, a stand alone album from a great stylist.”

“At last, the record we’ve been waiting for – that astonishing guitar technique coupled with one of England’s finest voices” Ralph McTell
“The voice and guitar of Bob Fox are always a delight to listen to and the production by John Tams ensures a full and rich sound. It’s a well balanced, beautifully produced album that is a pleasure to listen to, again and again.” Taplas
“Today I’ve been listening to a CD that has me entranced, delighted and excited all at once. Fox is a supreme guitarist with a deft touch and rhythmic sense – a voice as sweet and strong as blackstrap molasses. It’s the best thing I’ve heard from the revival in ages.” Living Tradition
“A richly warm voice gives his storytelling real credibility and engagement” fRoots
