"Old Gray Mule hosted an 80th birthday tribute to North Mississippi''s Junior Kimbrough at TC''s Lounge recently, a perfect pairing of atmosphere and attitude. The Lockhart duo has the dog in ''em certainly, delivering instrumental juke joint blues of the Fat Possum variety with a ass pocket of whiskey." Austin Powell, music reviewer Austin Chronicle
"Old Gray Mule’s debut was recorded in two hours and 50 minutes in the beautifully restored Edythe Bates Chapel in Round Top. That Festival Hill venue is most often the site of classical music, not this duo’s foot-stompin,’ tent revival sound, but OGM had an in with the manager because Falco, who works for a local stone outfitter, helped build the catacombs under the chapel."
“Sound Like Somethin’ Fell Off The House,” which features ten instrumental boogie blues numbers by guitarist Charley (“C.R.”) Humphrey and drummer Joe Falco, sounds at home on South Australia’s community-based, pure roots label. The duo’s front porch party sound, stripped down to just muscle and bone, could be called “lowdown under blues.”
- Michael Corcoran, Austin American Statesman
"It’s about time Austin added a down and dirty, board stomping blues band to it’s eclectic jukebox! I’ve caught OGM at Latitude 30 a couple of times and always ended up with a sore heel and a sweaty mind. C.R. weaves guitar riffs so dirty I felt like I’d been sitting next to the ***** in church. If you haven’t seen’em yet, get out this weekend, drop 5 bucks at the door and let some of that delta mud pump through your veins."
