WHAT THEY HAVE SAID
BLUES BLAST MAGAZINE - Rainey Wetnight
When it comes to blues artists, some are renowned for their studio albums and others for their in-person performances. A clear example of the latter case is Buffalo’s Patti Parks, who complains about a “Cheat’n Man” on her 2013 debut release...it contains nine original songs perfect for live venues. Even its length, at just over thirty minutes,
is just right for an outdoor blues festival time slot.
