PRESS QUOTES:

“ this live-in-the-studio debut album of the "Limpin Express" shows the road they have chosen to follow with striking and innovative songs - with more songs like these and maybe another second album, it’s very likely they will make a breakthrough outside of Greece…”
Eric Schuurmans, RootsTime magazine, NL – May 2013

“ this is a bold step for a band that’s been around for only two years. Late ‘60s rock meets the true blues tradition - a very carefully and well produced album with a power trio that plays in a way that, by no means makes you think they come from Greece”
Dirk Föhrs, (chief editor) BluesNews magazine, DE – October 2013

“Now this band’s called Limpin Express. That’s L-I-M-P-I-N and E-X-P-R-E-S-S. I’m spelling down the name for you to write it down ‘cause this is definitely a keeper debut album you’re really going to enjoy”
Tony Corner, (radio producer) I.B.B.A., UK – August 2013

"one of the finest albums I heard in the last year. And I bar none..."
E.Zaikos, Blues Wire guitar player – April 2013

“this band offers a well played mix of oldschool rock, while in the meantime (and this happens rather rarely among new and upcoming rock and blues bands) they do play some true delta blues.This happens because they know their craft and don’t overdo it in showing off, like other youngsters out there“
Blues Matters magazine, UK – August 2013
