      "The thing that really made me sit up and take notice was the bass lines."
      (Paul McCartney talking of Carol Kaye's bass playing on Pet Sounds)
      "In the world of bass guitar, Carol Kaye is a legend."

      "This woman is, putting it bluntly, damn red hot and fabulous on both guitar and bass guitar."

    • Cream of The Crate: Album # 199 - Lightning Hopkins: The Gold Star Series Vol 1
      by Rob Greaves
      "The blues is born with you. When you born in this world, you were born with the blues. (Lightnin’ Hopkins, 1967)
      "
      Sam (Lightnin') Hopkins, one of the great country blues singers and perhaps the greatest single influence on rock guitar players." (New York Times Obituary, Feb 1, 1982 )
      "These are not necessarily the best known Lightnin' Hopkins tracks, but in many ways that makes this CD even more valuable."

    • Cream of The Crate: Album # 198 - John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band
      by Rob Greaves
      "The reality of Plastic Ono Band is that it contains eleven of Lennon’s most accessible and gorgeous melodies and riffs." (Gerry Mullholand - BBC review 2010)
      "An album that will be as much analysed as Sgt. Pepper over the years." (Billboard - 1971)
      "
      It remains one of the most audacious, iconoclastic albums in all of rock and roll." (Guitar World 2016)
      "
      The album certainly shows that he had yet to work through many unresolved matters, and that he still had much anger in him. However he was a brilliant man and knew how to channel these elements in such a way to create some brilliant, memorable and haunting tracks." (This review)

    • Cream of The Crate: Album # 197 - Sam and Dave: The Best Of
      by Rob Greaves
      "Sam Moore and Dave Prater's string of soul and pop hits made them the '60s' most successful black vocal duo." (The Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll (Simon & Schuster, 2001)
      "Sam & Dave created some of their century's most enduring music in the pop form." (Stylus Magazine January 2007)
      "
      There can be no argument that as a duo, Sam and Dave introduced the previously successful sound of the black church music, so successfully to pop music." (This review)
