The Edmonton Sun – Review
“Tim Lee’s lead guitar gets better every year… his phrasing is just superb!”

“…up there with anything pulled off on Delmark’s recent live disc by Lurrie Bell and Michael Coleman who are two of Chicago’s best players.”


See Magazine – Review
“…has learned his blue lessons well, getting early inspiration from Mel Brown before apprenticing with the likes of Russell Jackson and Sam Cockrell.”

“…presents a good mix of originals and covers, some fine playing and a selection of material that touches a lot of blues bases.”


Blues Revue – Review
“…lays back like a long swing in a cool hammock on a hot, breezy day.”

“‘Cleo’s Back’ is one powerful start to the disc, exorcising the Stax soaked spirits of Booker T. and Motown’s Jr. Walker in an R&B driven instrumental that showcases the sizeable talents of each player.”

“…assuredly somebody with something to say and a new way to say it.”


Exclaim! Magazine – Review
“…Lee dosen’t draw distinctions between genres, freeing him up to play what he enjoys, creating it in his own voice, aided by a simpatico crew of accomplished players. Harpist Chris ‘Junior’ Malleck compliments Lee’s skills perfectly and bassist Steve Toms and drummer Murray Campbell complete a tight band that mine a subtle groove that grows addictive with repeated listening.”


Echo Magazine – Cover Story
“…that sweet mix of warm drive and cocky treble that defines the Tim Lee sound.”

“Whether he’s emitting humorous rooster squawks from the belly of that guitar, seamless blues phrases from it’s strings, or bellowing something about someone doing him wrong, he is always a showman and always rocks.”


Echo Magazine – Review
“…proves he can step out of standard blues renditions and mark his own territory.”
