"Larrie Cook and the Blues masters"

"Here For A Goodtimeî is a CD that picks you up and throws you straight on the dance floor!"

"This is an excellent CD and Larrie is an all round winner here. If you have seen him live you will want the CD. If you have the CD you will want to see him perform!"

"This is a scorcher of a CD and one that I recommend for your collection. Theses guys should be on the bill at every Blues Festival !"

"Bluesman Larrie Cook hís talents singing playing guitar, sax and harmonica make him a rare dude."

"Larrie Cook is a highly experienced blues singer/songwriter, guitarist, harp player and saxophonist who has played all around the world. He has a rich yet gravel gutbucket voice that he can change (chameleon fashion) to sound like Dr. John, Tom Waits, Johnny Winter and Albert Collins, (even Louis Armstrong at times) according to the songs demands."

"Larrie plays great Albert Collins style guitar and his years on the road means that he is very fluid and often playing faster than you realise!"

"Sales for the CD have been phenomenal and everywhere they play the crowds are hanging by the rafters and shouting more, more, more! Among the verdicts from the audience are, really gifted, awesome, excellent"

"Finally someone doing it right! Others describe him as the best Bluesman they have ever seen live!"
