“Love this record it puts the blue into Blue Grass it’s as good it gets. The songs on this album will take you on a ride thru Virginia, Tennessee and thru the hills of Kentucky, and on a magic carpet ride US 23 the country music Highway” Guthrie Kennard
“Brock does bluegrass the way Bill Monroe wanted it to be done. Complete with single microphone, soulful songs and great stage presence. Finding him in the middle of the Netherlands surprised and delighted us.” Ben Wright – Henhouse Prowlers
“Herman Brock Jr. is about as country a songwriter as anyone anywhere…. Texas or Holland!” Jesse Dayton
“A wonderful Dutch bluegrass album that far exceeds the sometimes playing hobbyism in the genre.”
‘Een heerlijke Nederlandse bluegrassplaat, die het in het genre soms opspelende hobbyisme ver overstijgt”
