What the others say
"From Lincolnshire, the Blues Boy Kings are a blues band of high calibre and are active on the festival circuit. The album 'Second Time Around' is their second CD release. Superb guitar and sax... Great slide guitar... Great vocals from Sam, with shades of Bonnie Raitt...Great blues harp playing... Thumping drums... Excellent Album. I have seen these guys live and for me that is the way to really appreciate how good the musicianship of this band is".
