REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this is a movie where more music, less talk would definitely have been an improvement..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
“..despite its occasional repetitiveness and slow start, Blues fans will love hearing about the influence BB had on fellow musicians and the archival footage is occasionally pretty spectacular..”
by Jennifer Tate [ViewLondon]
“..to its credit, Jon Brewer's film digs deep into the roots..”
by Trevor Johnston [Time Out London]
