Blues Revue Magazine, Oct-Nov 2006 Issue:
"Lew Jetton & 61 South blur the line between straight-ahead blues and Southern Rock ( "Two Lane Road," "I Been Cheated"). Jetton''s husky vocals front a terrific rhythm section (Greg Walker on bass and Erik Eicholtz on drums), and his guitar shares space with Sam Moore''s and with Dan Bell''s organ. Guest Bob Lohr''s piano fills out "Cadillac Gal" and "Nighttime Into Day," a romantic R&B ballad boosted by Terry Mike Jeffrey''s sax. They visit the roadhouse on "Cause You Lie To Me" (a rocking adaptation of Tampa Red and Albert King''s "I Get Evil," boogie hard on "The Trouble," and lay down a jazzy shuffle on "Come Out Baby." Potential standards include "Tattoo Blues," and "Waffle House Woman." Thumbs up for Tales From A 2 Lane."
"Mike Halmo here , blues director WBOR, Brunswick, Maine. Just letting you know that we did receive "Tales From A 2 Lane" and man, this is a great cd. That opening cut "I Been Cheated" just sets the tone,,,I mean, if you hadn''t felt cheated before listening to that cut, sure as hell you do by the end of the number. Have entered this into rotation and you can bet this one is going to chart here at WBOR. We are a reporting station to Living Blues Magazine."
Tales from A 2 Lane features several of the bands most loved originals from the past few years along with some new gems, including the groovin'' "I Been Cheated," the silky smooth "Nighttime Into Day," The hypnotic "The Trouble," The hilarious "Waffle House Woman," the ode to the tattoo "Tattoo Blues, the ode to the CB radio, "CB Song," and much more! 61 South is known for Lew''s unique voice which conveys both fun, and at times pain for a truly unique Blues style.
