"Time for the Blues"

Homegrown blues band The Blue Prints strike all the right chords on their debut album, Blues With A Feeling, an 11-song set recorded in November of last year and April of this year at Tea Hill Studio. Guitarist Mike Robicheau, bass player Chris Roumbanis and drummer Roger Greaves logged a lot of hours together before going into the studio so when they finally got there they were ready to roll. You have to make an album the way they made this one."

"All of the tracks on this set were recorded live and most are first takes. Much of the material on Blues With a Feeling will be familiar to any serious blues fan. There are traditional blues tunes like Good Morning Little School Girl and Early in the Morning plus gems from the catalogs of blues legends like Lowell Fulson and Buddy Guy. The mix of material is great and the balance between hard chargers and slow, smoldering blues numbers is just right. Robicheau delivers some very tasty licks on this set and the vocals, most of which are delivered by Roumbanis, who also produced, engineered and mixed the CD, are right on the money. Prime tracks on this set, which is nominated for a Music P.E.I. Award, include Honey Hush, Early in the Morning, Midnight Train, Why Get Up and Good Morning Little School Girl. (Rating: 3 stars out of 5)" - Doug Gallant - The Guardian

"Electric Blues Live from the Floor"

Electric blues live from the floor! The tunes on this CD are classic blues; some obscure chestnuts and the occasional surprise as in their version of a John Prine tune. - Lloyd Doyle - Sandbar Music Group - Sandbar Music Group
