"Those of you who love Blues, guitar, powerful soulful vocals, a tight rhythm section, and the West Side sound that has inspired so many of the best Blues players, will be thrilled to know that Bobby Radcliff's got something hot and
new for you."
Bob Margolin for Blueswax.com

"Natural Ball is an impressive return to form, and as it's the only Radcliff disc currently available - his four incredible Black Top albums are out of print -
it's an essential example of Radcliff's jaw-dropping skill as a guitarist."
Hal Horowitz in Blues Revue

"IT'S LIKE A BOLT OUT OF THE BLUE!!!"
John Sinclair of Radio Free Amsterdam

"It's great to see Bobby is still leaving no prisoners behind when it comes to playing and singing the blues. I will definitely give this additional airplay in the weeks ahead!"
Steve Hoffman on WPFW-FM

It's a raw and nasty collection of crowd-pleasers set down on CD for the first time by Bobby with his tightest trio yet, featuring
Chris Matheos on bass and Keith Hurrell on drums.

If you're tired of over-produced blues records with too many overdubs and too many players, get ready for this in-your-face
blast of pure blues power.

"Bobby doesn't just perform the blues. He's possessed by them. He plays so angry and sings so hurt, it's like a catharsis - maybe even an exorcism - for both him and the audience... Be glad he's on your side. He's fierce all right, but he won't attack you; he'll drive away your demons. If, on the other hand, you fancy yourself a guitar player... be afraid. Be very afraid."
Steve Hoffmann for WDCU-FM, Washington, DC

"Unencumbered by style restrictions, Radcliff brings a sense of intensity and conviction, both instrumentally and vocally (the latter being an area where many 90s interpreters fall face down) that puts his, and this, live performance into a very special league of its own."
Dave Hussong for "Vintage Guitar" magazine

"It's a firey showcase of tracks that perfectly flaunt his strengths as a soloist, as well as a funky rhythm guitarist. The tunes are an intense blend of stone cold blues and killer R&B.;"
Chip Lamey for WFLR-FM, Atlantic City

"With his scorching guitar work, impassioned vocals and inventive arrangements, he breathes fire into these tracks and makes them his own."
Nick Christiano for the Knight-Ridder Syndicate

"I swear, Bobby Radcliff is so tough that Black Top Records should package some meat tenderizer with his CDs. When I first heard his album Dresses Too Short, I was sure that sparks must come off of his heels when he walks, now he leaves me no doubt. This cat is incandescent. I seems almost psychokinetic, if he imagines it, his guitar will play it. If you like guitar that sizzles, sears and challenges you imagination, check out Bobby Radcliff. But don't forget the tenderizer"
Kelcey Ham for the "Sacramento Blues Society" magazine

"FIVE STARS!...Not since Stevie Ray Vaughan's first set has there been such a smashing bow by a blues-rock guitarist."
"downbeat" magazine

"Conventional musicritese - scorching, blistering, pyrotechnical and all that jive - fails to convey the heat in these grooves. More than heat, this platter's got muscle. A tightly coiled, spiky, New York kinda muscle. It's a new kind of blues, daring, dangerous and devastating."
Andy Glass in The Music Paper
