Syracuse Post-Standard, Dec. 11 Review by Mark Bialczak:

"Bluesman Mick Mercury has returned to his roots in the Mohawk Valley after more than a dozen years of winning blues awards in the Carolinas.

"With Mick on vocals and bass, Pops Mercury on vocals and harmonica, Rod Broadbent on guitar and Kevin Hoffman on drums, "Beerman" serves up the blues with just a touch of rock fire.

"Mick Mercury's dark, gritty voice delivers big time in "Fancy Hat." With new shoes, life's good with the blues, indeed."
