Read about what other people think and say about our live gigs and of our albums.
In addition to our English quotes we have taken the liberty to translate some Swedish reviews for you as well. Obviously we have more of those lying around.
”How Swede it is. From the land of the Vikings comes Doctor Blues. Guitarist/singer/songwriter Lennart Olofsson leads an ensemble fronted by sweet-voiced vocalist Karin Rudefelt. Cooking with powerful restraint. Fine players all, and they´ve done their homework!”
“Doctor Blues is often considered one of the best live gigs…”
”Karin Rudefelt & Doctor Blues is yet more proof of the greatness and spectrum of the Swedish blues scene”
“I have played a lot from the record “Breakin’ the Chain” and I am very impressed with both Karin and the band. This is so good that they should extend their touring to Norway as well. Norway deserves it!!”
“”Doctor Blues has the ability to provide a variation of expression in a quite conservative category. Its rocky and heavy blues with a fresh sound and Karin Rudefelt must have one of Sweden’s best female blues voices. Maybe a huge breakthrough waiting?”
”This is heavy, really heavy! Karin Rudefelt has to be Sweden’s best blues singer and she even scores high on the overall listing. Add a band which knows what it’s doing and you get first class blues! Lennart Olofsson has written blues songs that are simply perfect. Modern blues which clings on to its roots and it is all good. It is blues that’s vibrant, feels right and real. Buy the album if you want to hear blues that lives.”
”To resist blues is hard. To resist really good blues is furtunately even harder, Immediate goosebumps.”
“A song similar to this has never been heard at the Blue Beat Club before. Look out Bonnie and Norah!”
”A really fine Swedish blues band with a great vocalist!”
“Having listened to `Breaking The Chain` a few times now I have to say it’s at least as good as the last album. Simply a five star edition.” ”I am playing tracks from your CD in my radio show ´Mojo Blues´! Exellent stuff that deserve exposure to a wider range of blues lovers!”
“If you are looking for the right mix between fine rock and good blues, don´t forget to listen to the music of this cool Swedish band called `Doctor Blues`. A compact, temporary sound which doesn’t forget its tradition, with a passionate mood, simple grooves with real feeling and the beautiful voice of Karin Rudefelt.
“Magic Brew is the best Swedish blues I´ve heard in many years”
”Now that´s my kind of blues! Original, creative and soul infused. It all grooves with confidence. They have something “real” to say on their new CD, which defines their unique sound. Magic Brew has the Voodoo vibe! Have you guys been to the Crossroads or something? This blues actually makes me horny…”
“Rudefelt is a fiery vocalist, pressing the juice out of every syllable. Magic Brew is wonderful car riding blues!”
“Here are traces of both delta blues and Bristish blues rock. Guitar player Anders Wemming’s scared slide play is among the highlights of the album.”
“It´s a magic brew… Third time around. They have recorded a melting pot of lots of hot musical spices: from straight blue blues to aggressively pulsating bluesrock. Decorated with Karins ´trademark vocals´ on top. And exclusively own material. Yes, a magic brew indeed. Well done and ambitious of course. Still got the boots on the ground. Both aggressive & bold, as well as shuffling like in ´Point of no Return´. Neatly done!!!”
