This is by far the very best blues harmonica cd that I have gotten this year, yes I know, I just finished a review of the new James Cotton CD too! James is the ol' BluzHarp Master while Steve Potter is a new age BluzMan that is doing a damned fine job of carrying on the torch. I had never heard of Steve Potter until he sent me this CD and I am simply amazed and excited as hell to finally get some stuff, (Pure no bullshit/kickass blues harmonica music), that is not a cookie cutter band, Steve is his own man. I am so excited about Steve's playing because I have never heard anyone with his particular sound and way of phrasing. I am not saying he is the best I have ever heard, but he is smoking, it is the fact someone is sounding like themselves. I talked to him for a few minutes just before doing this review and he says that he plays through two amps at once on the CD,a Sears Silvertone 1481 model with an 8 inch speaker and a Gibson GA-20 with a 12 inch speaker. He plays through a Astatic JT-30 with an element from an old 1940s Green Bullet, and it is nasty! Steve plays both diatonic and chromatic equally well and with authority, his octaves are so full, especially on the chro like Rod Piazza. I give this Cd a strong (7) Harp Salute along with my most coveted "NASTY HARP" Award, some of his tunes are dripping with pure pork fat they are so greasy. I am pretty darn sure this will be in my "Top Ten Best of The Year" come this December. I put my personal seal of approval on this CD, Muddy and John Lee are smiling down on Steve Potter! ~Steve "Big Daddy Bluzharp" Harvell
