Hans Theessink is probably Europe's No. 1 blues. After 8,000 concerts and 50 years "on the road," he is a roots and blues institution. With his sonorous baritone voice and unmistakable guitar work, Hans delights audiences around the world with his rich and emotional sounds.

The US blues press called him "an international blues treasure" and "one of the world's pre-eminent pickers". The legendary Bo Diddley called him "one helluva guitar player". In 2018 Hans was inducted into the Dutch Blues Hall Of Fame. This fabulous acoustic recording sets standards, both musically and audiophile. All instruments and voices were recorded in „live“ sessions with no overdubs. Microphone placement and mixing were done precisely in the best possible way.

“Theessink has composed a stirring set of songs that seamlessly fuse his unplugged strumming, sonorous voice, and three-piece band into the very definition of laid-back comfort. Such magnificent combinations of seemingly divergent elements drive this splendid album to spine-tingling heights. Theessink doesn't play traditional blues here; instead, he deftly references the genre as one of many stops on his global trek through the Delta, into backwoods folk, and onward to Africa.” - Hal Horowitz, Blues Revue

“Slow Train is absolutely stunning. Bridge was a peach of an album, full of African influences and beautifully married to Theessink's deep love of the blues, but he's gone one better with this one. The songwriting is so strong and his band is nothing short of incredible. Those African influences continue to play a major part too; think a bluesier Graceland and you'd be getting close to what this man does. Theessink's voice is the perfect foil for the music; deep and creamy but with a lovely easygoing quality to it. My favorite song is the title track; I loved it on first hearing and it just gets better with every play. In fact, that's true of the whole album, a really uplifting experience. Pure gold dust.” - Andrew Hobbs, Hi-Fi Plus Magazine
