"A staggering amount of work has gone into this whole project and Morten Reff is to be congratulated in his dogged determination to catalogue it all." (Now Dig This, October 2013)
"The work is one of monumental scope, painstaking research and execution." (Blues & Rhythm, November 2013)
"Here's Volume 4, and I've gotten more enjoyment out of this volume even than the first three, because of the large selection of soundalike recordings. It's entirely impossible for this section to be anywhere near complete, but I really enjoyed looking... Chuck Berry's legacy as "the father of rock'n'roll" (his own term, not mine) does indeed call for extensive coverage in books, and this may the most effective way to delineate his influence after all... For anyone thinking of becoming a Chuck Berry Collector, these books are the place to start." (Blue Suede News, January 2014)
