    The comparison of Connor to Bonnie Raitt is unavoidable, considering the similarities of their vocal style and skill at slide guitar. But Connor offers a more savage guitar approach, akin to George Thorogood, and she comes on as a bit nastier. The album is filled with impressive guitar work, but the bad-girl pose wears thin after a while. ~ Tim Sheridan

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (3/97, p.57) - 3.5 Stars - (out of 5) - "Joanna Connor's fire-breathin' Les Paul belts out the blues. With venom in her vocals and rockin' intensity in her gut, she powers her way into this collection of originals..."
    JazzTimes (3/97, p.77) - "A searing slide guitar stylist who also cites Freddie King and Otis Rush as major influences, Joanna Connor serves up some toe-curling licks and soul-satisfying originals on BIG GIRL BLUES....A hot new property on the contemporary blues-rock scene. Heart meets Johnny Winter."
