Tuff Love offers up a great set of blues, and I highly recommend this CD. The CD closes with a nod to Little Walter, with Boom Boom Steve taking the Mississippi saxophone to new heights on the “Sad Hours” instrumental. I’d like to think that Little Walter would have appreciated and enjoyed this cover, and I can’t give it any higher praise than that. A solid blues record from an accomplished band”

Bluesy Steve V. and the Knockouts will bowl you over. (Steve) plays with conviction and purpose, expressively wringing the life out of that little piece of metal and wood (harmonica) like some kind of whirling dervish.”
