"...the proverbial best singer nobody's ever heard of, even though he's known in folk music circles as the guy with the sweet pipes and the droll wit who runs Café Carpe, one of the nation's best small venues for touring singer-songwriters." Capital Times
"Here is Bill Camplin, nothing but his voice and guitar, both sounding as amazingly crystal clear and beautiful, taking on the timeless songs of Bob Dylan. This is one of the most beautiful recordings I've ever come upon." singer-songwriter Dean Stevens
