The Songwriting Sessions
"Great singing,great playing – a testament to a talent that never fully realised itself" UNCUT ****
"A remarkable release that brings validity to the sometimes despised 'white southern soul' tag" MOJO
"Released by the heroic Zane label, 'Dear Y’all' comes as an unexpected bonus" THE GUARDIAN ****
Just as his guitar playing is one of soul music's essential signatures, so the voice cuts to the quick,almost unbearably sad and naked at times.    UNCUT MAGAZINE
This terrific collection of leftovers is as good an intro to his searing Otis-meets-Womack howl of a voice as anything the guy recorded.    MOJO
When It comes to unrecognised genius,Eddie Hinton was a record breaker.
This album is a gem,drenched in deep southern-fried blues and soul.Backed by the full Muscle Shoals team,Hinton's distinctive guitar spits out burning licks, but it his less celebrated voice which is the real glory,revealing a blue-eyed soul shouter who rivalled Joe Cocker as the blackest white voice ever.    THE TIMES
Hinton sings with the growl of Otis Reading and plays guitar like a southern-fried fusion of Neil Young and Steve Cropper.His performances crackle like Bacon on a hot skillet one moment and simmer like a pot of collard greens the next.
Jim Markel -'No Depression Mag'
It's mostly Eddie's material,too,and in the case of songs such as "Lovin Chain" and I Cant Be Me, top drawer stuff:rarely has the emotional dislocation of deep soul been expressed as clearly as in the latter.
