'[McVay] is a fine harmonica player and a superb singer. His vocals are a little reminiscent of the classier modern blues-soul singers (Bland, Junior Parker et al) but, characteristically, he avoids pastiche. Somehow, McVay pulls off the difficult trick of being soulful with a British accent; his voice is smooth and rich, yet passionate' (Nicola Lee, Blues in Britain).
