"Hmm – it is impossible not to like Reverend Freakchild, one of the blues great eccentrics, er, I mean individuals. This release is kind of a road trip roughly clockwise round the United States – yes, those are shades of Jack Kerouac in the title. It is three minutes into the album before there is any music, as quite a few of the listed 26 tracks are snatches of conversations with or interviews by various radio DJs. No, they don’t get boring, but they do give a good idea of the Rev’s personality – even when all his equipment, instruments, gig money and his clean laundry have been stolen, he can see the silver lining. He did at least get a song out of it - ‘Hippie Bluesman Blues’.

Musically, Freakchild runs from the psychedelic country-gospel-blues rock of ‘Roadtrance’ to a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s ‘White Freightliner Blues’ which then segues into The Beatles’ ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’, from JJ Cale’s ‘Call Me The Breeze’ to the venerable standard ‘Rollin’ & Tumblin’’, from Z.Z. Top’s ‘Jesus Just Left Chicago’ to the traditional ‘You Gotta Move’. And surely the good Reverend can be one of only a few who will have a track more or less consisting of his drummer talking about his time with Bob Dylan – no egos from the leader here. As I said, it’s impossible not to like Reverend Freakchild…" - Norman John Darwen / Flying Shoes (UK)
