"a great picker and a killer songwriter" - Acoustic Guitar Magazine
"After a recent concert in Connecticut,
someone came up to me and asked 'My God, this guy lives such a crazy
life. When does he have time to write songs?' They had just listened
to two hours of songs and stories about the life of the singer who,
it seemed, had been a hot-wire artist, a junk yard denizen, a catfish
farmer. Through it all he was a songwriter who had plied his trade from
New York City to Nashville, loving a few dozen women, fathering a bunch
of kids, meeting car-jacking mothers, buying sunglasses in Barcelona
and dancing naked in parking lots with everyone except Muddy Waters.
This listener, like so many others, had been beguiled into the fictional
world of Eddy Lawrence, a world so full of truth that it's hard to remember
it's all a story written in songs by one of the country's great unknowns."
