Down Beat (p.83) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Tina brings extroverted carnality to songs associated with, among others, B.B. King, Jimmy Reed, Robert Johnson and T-Bone Walker..."Dirty Linen (p.63) - "With Ike serving up stinging-hot guitar riffs and Tina channeling James Brown's growl and Otis REdding's soul with her deeply emotive singing, the blues have rarely been given such soulful interpretation."0.2616725

JazzTimes (6/97, p.104) - "The Jellyroll Kings deal in gritty juke joint splendor....this all-the-way-raw collection highlights...spontaneous interaction and real deal abandon....authentic feel and unbounded enthusiasm..."Option (7-8/97, pp.112-113) - "...The charms of OFF YONDER WALL outweigh all the negatives....doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not. It's blues, plain and simple...sloppily true to the heart of the music."Musician (3/97, p.90) - "...The Jelly Roll Kings...know how to groove....They also know how to get low-down, psychedelic, demented and sweaty, which brings out the best in Johnson's often whimsical musical imagination on guitar. All three of them deserve to be a much bigger deal..."0.2474631
