Down Beat (2/00, p.70) - 4 out of 5 - "With his cloudy intonation and sensually nonchalant vocal delivery in sharp contrast to the glasslike clarity of his guitar picking, Phelps puts across a strong program dominated by original tunes....unfailingly perceptive [lyrics]..."Living Blues (1-2/95, p.105) - "...he can conjure up eerie and complex tones reminiscent of Ry Cooder's instrumental opening to the film `The Long Ryders.' Phelps bows to Skip James and Joe Calicott; the rest of the set consists of originals that mine the traditional blues themes of women and travel, with a little religion thrown in just in case."0.3593148
