'Bill Parker's guitar echoes the guitars of Jimmie Rodgers and Keith Richards; it's accompaniment is as appropriate, as suitable, as that of the great blues singers. His lyrics are priceless, timeless. 'The music, in it's directness, it's total lack of irony, it's -- alarming? -- sincerity, makes immediate demands. It's not just sittin' on the back porch pickin'. No, it's more like being in an operating room where a surgeon is using a guitar to look into the heart. His and yours. Parker is one of the heavies; if he were a jeweler, he'd be on 10th Street.' -- Stanley Booth, author of 'The True Adventures of The Rolling Stones'.
