"This is sunshine music"

"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."
Gordon Baxter Blues in Britain magazine

"Raw, righteous,..the real Delta deal."
Leslie Fleury (Radio DJ, Blues Odyssey on KSER)

"You guys are the real deal!"
Will Dawson (sound engineer at Delta Recording Studio, Clarksdale, Mississippi)

"You guys have really got a good little unit there... I thought that was pretty darn good - you don't have to take a back seat to anybody"
Sonny 'Sunshine' Payne (legendary presenter of King Biscuit Time on Radio KFFA, Helena, Arkansas)

"They give you the spirit and essence that is required and deliver with belief...their playing is indeed atmospheric and complimentary and will get you tapping your feet at the appropriate times...more please guys!"
Blues Matters Magazine

"They are exceptional"
John Roberts (Bullfrog Blues Club promoter)

A sound check and they were into the first number "Smokestack Lightnin"' with great harp, "Come In My Kitchen", "Few Short Lines", "It Hurts Me Too", one of several numbers with both Mark and Rick playing slide, made my hair stand up on end. Then came several numbers from the CD One For The Road. These include "I Asked Her For Water", "Global Conspiracy Blues," "I Want You To Stay" and "I'm Going Out", which ended the set.

The Lich was full when the second half started with "Feel Like Going Home", which again had them both playing slide. Mark and Rick were in full swing with "Big Lumps Of Nothing", "Crying Down In Clarksdale", some country blues numbers; they just kept coming. Then it was 6.45 pm.

Everybody had enjoyed the session including Mark and Rick. They did us proud. Martin Chambers of The Pretenders, who had dropped in, commented, `What a brilliant way to spend a Sunday afternoon!' Keep an eye out for Sons Of The Delta, you will really enjoy them!
