It might be 50 years since Machine Gun was released, but these three legends prove that they can continue in the same extravagant path, always leave behind gems from these explorations.- Spyros Stasis, Invisible Oranges

for sheer energy and excitement Fifty Years After is a great aural ride that can hardly be equalled or topped. - Ken Waxman, Jazzword

They created a stellar performance that ranks with that classic album in terms of intensity, but also displays all of the hard won knowledge and wisdom that fifty years in the musical trenches can instill.- Tim Niland, Jazzandblues
