"[W]ild, menacing and on the edge, kind of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins singing half-remembered Appalachian murder ballads...this is a very individual take on the blues and the theme of a down-at-heel touring carnival certainly suits the music. Weird, maybe, but certainly interesting too." Norman Darwen, Blues in the South

"A creation so unbridled that it sometimes comes to seem hallucinated...Ralph Beeby & The Elephant Collective definitively impose their trademark on a scene that, more than ever, has the need to evolve a little more. A must try!" - Fred Delfonge, Zicazic/Le Zicazine (translated)

"An album of blues that breaks with sacred tradition, without being outlandish in a comic-book way." - Eloy Pérez, Ruta66 (translated)

 The first full-length album from Ralph Beeby & the Elephant Collective, now on CD in an attractive digipack sleeve, featuring artwork by Wahyu Wintolo.
