Jesters presented many international acts from Phyllis Diller to Gary Muledeer, Harry Anderson and a young Andrew ""Dice"" Clay.

Harpdog is a great blues man. This set captures the way he puts his individual stamp on everything he does. He is in total command onstage – and enjoying every minute. The addition of Will MacCalder is a bonus.
~ Holger Petersen ~ CKUA and CBC Radio ~

Brown is an excellent singer and bandleader who reminds me a lot of the late Hock Walsh and he has put together a program that you can often hear in clubs but seldom so well played - heavy on blues feeling.
~ John Valenteyn

Isn’t it nice to know that all the “fast – food / flavor of the week” blues artist are easily dispensed with when compared with the REAL THING.I mean the bona-fide, totally authentic purveyor of heart and soul, down-in-the-alley blues. And, belive you me, Harpdog Brown and the Bloodhounds are purveyors with pedigree.

~ Andy “Blues Boy” Grigg ~ Blues Review Magazine

""There's never been any question in my mind; Harpdog Brown is absolutely the 'genuine item, the real thing'. I'll say the same thing Eric Burdon once said to me,
""We're wild dogs from the same pack!""
~Tom Lavin, Powder Blues, ~ August 2002
