"Talking Guitar delivers exactly what its title and its creator's reputation promise: lucid translations of prewar records and expert insight into what made them so good. After hearing Paul Rishell's blues, you'll have a hard time denying the power of such bare, organic, and emotive sound."
- Katie Lambert, LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE
"Boston-area blues stalwart Paul Rishell does something fairly miraculous on “Talking Guitar,” his acoustic paean to blues guitar greats from the 1920s and ’30s: Far from churning out a museum piece, he’s produced a record as moody, gritty and vibrant as the genre itself. As much as it feels channeled into the present from 80-plus years ago, it also feels alive and of the now."
