MY BROTHER'S BLUES
"Absolutely killer stuff throughout." - Midwest Record
"Even though it’s taken him awhile to receive the recognition he deserves as a blues man, Benny Turner is making up for lost time these days. Blues fans are advised to do the same thing in checking out his music. This is a great introduction to Benny Turner, and a great reminder of the powerful music that Freddie King left us." - BluesBytes
"This is Benny Turner paying tribute to his brother, the late and legendary Freddie King. Unlike others, who are only familiar with the music on those tribute recordings they release, Benny Turner has lived it." - Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro, mary4music.com
"On this project, Benny once again proves that he can hold his own with the best of them in the music business, and if you like classic soul blues with horns and righteous keyboards. This album will certainly tickle your blues fancy." - Rex Bartholomew, Blues Blast Magazine
"Freddie and Benny toured the circuit together and each learned from each other. Songs we all remember from King's songbook... and MORE gems are all well represented here as only Benny could play them." - Shameless James Ronan, Blue Monday Monthly
"Everything is there! The heart, the guts and the spirit... With a record like this and his eleven tracks and a track record like his, it's no wonder that Bennie Turner is being accepted at the Chicago Blues Hall of Fame this October." Caesar, Blues Again
"After just a few songs from 'My Brother's Blues' by Benny Turner, you'll be able to see the absolutely incredible wealth of “blue notes” that are so inspired, knowingly and safely performed by Benny Turner and his musicians." - Soundguardian.com
"This is an incredible album, perfect for all those Texas blues lovers. ESSENTIAL" - LaHora del Blues
