"...Big Bill is none other than the son of the Windy City blues master Muddy Waters....your arm and neck hairs will stand on end when Big Bill moans and rasps in an uncannily family style..."
Living Blues - 7-8/99, pp.53-4
"...[Muddy's Band] back Morganfield unerringly, often recreating Muddy's vintage Chicago-style sound with eerie verisimilitude....it sounds as if [Morganfield's] got the chops to make a place for himself in the modern blues pantheon."

He's got some of the biggest shoes to fill in the history of blues, but Muddy Waters' son, Big Bill Morganfield leads three of his father's former compatriots through a stirring set of blues standards and new tracks. Morganfield's slide guitar is an excellent addition to the proceedings. ~ Earl Simmons
