“Heartache By The Number is surely one of the best soul albums to be released this year, and you’d be a fool to miss it.”
Funk and Soul Revue – George Haffenden
“….an outstanding set of jukebox favorites, recorded by the premier musicians of the Stax/Volt and Hi Records studios in Memphis….a heart and soul celebration of traditional southern soul music, performed by the players who do it best.
All About Jazz Reviews – James Nadal
“The Bo-Keys mix some familiar tunes with some that are more obscure, interpret them uniquely and find the right balance between listenable and danceable music. My only quibble is that there’s only 40 minutes of music. They’ve left us wanting more.”
Elmore Magazine – Jim Hynes
