"Joe Beard is an emotionally potent and rhythmically compelling singer of straight ahead blues." - Living Blues

"Beard's warm vocals resonate with feeling and his guitar playing is equally well grounded.   He deserves the spotlite that focuses on him." - Jazz Times

AQ-1049 Cover For Real finds Joe Beard fronting a blues dream team consisting of the great guitar stylist Robillard (fresh from recording sessions for Bob Dylan's latest masterpiece) along with Bruce Katz, Per Hanson and Rod Carey, better known as Ronnie Earl's crack band "The Broadcasters" until a few months ago.   Jerry Portnoy, known for his awesome harp work with Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton, joins in on four tracks.  

For Real is a potent combination of Beard originals and homages to Joe's main men, Lightning Hopkins and John Lee Hooker.  

Listen . . . Joe Beard is For Real!
