"Made In Mississippi is a belter of an album. Mark Cole and Rick Edwards, do not just "play" the Blues, they "feel" it too. This gives them the edge over many of their contemporaries.....they could easily find themselves being lauded as Britain's Jelly Roll Kings."

This is blues that is three things: authentic, original and intriguing. The album is full of sunshine, it is music you want to be out at a festival with, the mix of self-penned numbers and re-created covers so they belong to Sons of the Delta. You have to smile as the guitar, vocals and blues-harp blend and shape the sound that pleases in all the right spots. The inclusion of non-standard covers are a duo of delights: Curtis Mayfield’s ‘People Get Ready’ and Bukka White’s ‘When Can I Change My Clothes’ both have been re-invented and sound fresh while remaining true to the original. The other eleven tracks are all composed by Mark Cole, the band has utilised the freedom of the studio with some inspired guest appearances with electric guitar courtesy of Mike Myers with the twang of electric guitar on Downhome Blues giving the track a driving pace while we have piano added to the mix courtesy of Jake Carpenter on ‘Too Little Too Late’, blues redolent of Howlin Wolf as the intro guitar moans and sends a shiver down the spine again the vocals are to the fore. We hear the keys from Bill Blair on a number of tracks and they add another texture and tone particularly evident on 'Thirtynineteen' with the addition of harp from Mark Cole. This is blues that is from deep in the delta. Tasty Nuggets is certainly tasty and delivers a platter of tones, textures and grooves so you want to listen from beginning to end and back again on repeat.
