…you won’t find any ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ re-treads on this set, or even any blues-rock outings. The focus is on the songs and everything is tight and to-the-point. That makes it something of a rarity for the modern blues scene; that it is such an unqualified success is a real bonus! Norman Darwen

Flying Shoes Review

Wow now that is what l call an amazing album that quite frankly left me gobsmacked. Complex, moody sensuous Blues that are perfectly constructed and the charts are to die for. Latina and Markey as a duo are incredible  performers but aside from that obvious observation they are  incredible songwriters. Love so much about this album and this will start many a music fan’s foray into Blues music. Congratulations Ric and Markey.

There is a bit of Mississippi Delta, a bit of Chicago Blues, a little bit of Soul, but a whole lot of Markey Blue. Their new release, “The Blues are Knockin’” takes no prisoners.
