a match made in blues heaven! (Blues In Britain, UK)

The album moves at the easy pace of a river through the Deep South (Guitarist, UK)

a stripped-down, powerful vibe that is both mesmerizing and extremely entertaining! (Nashville Blues Society, US)

Delta Time takes the depth of the soul and wrings it out with a groove and melody that you can’t help but respond to. (Blues Festival E-Guide, US)

nothing less then a rare musical masterpiece (Blues Underground Network, CAN)

the electricity‘s turned off, but there’s plenty of power (No Depression Magazine, USA)

“Delta Time” is another gem . . . the vocal work is as standout as the exemplary guitar work, on this supremely classy and highly recommended album from two masters of the blues and roots genre. (Bluesinthenorthwest, UK)

Blues-Geheimtipp ★★★★★
Zeitlose Mucke, die das 12-taktige Bluesschema generations-übergreifend zum Hort von Reue und Demut fortschreibt. 13 Tracks, schnörkellos cool! (WAZ, D)

Beautiful, bare-bones intimate, and inspiring. The musician-ship is a cut above - really stellar. For an album with a laid back vibe, Delta Time really kicks. (American Blues Scene, US)

Kurier, ros (A) 16.Sept.2012 5 Sterne
Eine auf das Wesentliche reduzierte, intime Aufnahme, wobei die ausdrucksstarken Stimmen und Gitarren wunderbar zur Geltung kommen, u.a. mit Ry Cooder.
Roberto Rossi, Presenter Mystery Train (I) 27.sept..2012
DELTA TIME is simply fantastic: so fine, natural and heartfelt , with marvellous songs - originals and covers - It's not only music, but A DREAM COME TRUE! The interplay between guitars and vocals is PURE GOLD!

BluesRoad (D) okt.nov.2012
Theesink's tiefe Bassstimme und Terry Evans variablere Stimme ergänzen sich fantastisch. Was meiner Meinung nach der hervor-stechendste Aspekt dieser wunderbaren Aufnahmen ist, ist der Gesang. Einfach absolut herrlich!! Insbesondere wenn das Gesangstrio Evans, McCuller und Greene jr. im absoluten Delta-Feeling ihre Background vocals einbringen schwebt der Hörer ganz weit oben im Gedanken bei all den Deltablues Legenden.

(★★★★★=hervorragend | ★★★★=sehr gut)
Seit Ry Cooders "Crossroads"-Soundtrack haben nur wenige Platten für Momente die große Ära des Delta Blues so lebendig wiederauferstehen lassen wie diese.

R2, Rock 'n Reel (UK) Morgan Hogarth (UK)
Nov.-Dec. 2012
For this latest collaboration, Theessink and Evans returned to LA, with clear objectives - lock down the groove, create the mood, and deliver the wonderful, stripped back blues of their forefathers. They succeeded with style.
The thirteen tracks include five Theessink originals, plus a varied mix of mainly well-known blues songs, impeccably performed, with an interesting twist. Blues purists and other true music fans should savour the sheer intimacy of these expressive, timeless songs.

A masterclass in how to play the blues with soul and authenticity. (R2, UK)

La classe, grande classe!!! blues&co (F)
