"As you might expect from a man who plays in a Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute band, there is a lot of guitar on this album. But if you like the guitar-led blues-rock of SRV, Johnny Winter or Jeff Beck, you’ll love No Strings Attached."
- Rhys Williams 'Blues Blast Magazine'
No Strings Attached is a fine and varied set of blues from Randy Stephens that should expand his market well beyond the southeastern part of the U.S. if there’s any justice in the world.
- Graham Clarke 'Blues Bytes '
With the release of is American Guitar, Stephens is putting his own unique take on the Instrumental Rock guitar genre, one that is at once a testament to those that came before him, and at the same time a vision into the future of the music. – Dr Mat Warnock ‘Guitar International Magazine’
