…Jackie’s first solo album in over 20 years and shows that he had lost none of his vocal power or incisive song writing skills…This CD has never been released in Europe and deserves to be ranked alongside his earlier pair of solo albums
Martin Hutchinson, The Bolton News (February 2009)
Pure Soul/Rhythm & Blues at its finest and not depressing at all. Beautifully sang, groovy guitar work, aptly placed brass work, keyboards and a ‘get on your groove’ style funk; making me click my fingers and softly nod my head to the inspiring sound.
I really do like this album and I really wish I could now go and attend a proper Soul/Rhythm & Blues club with big fat cigars and whisky drinking cowboys.

…his first solo release in 20 years, restated his love for soul and blues.

Lomax’s soulful, laid back vocals and bluesy guitar solos are reminiscent of what Eric Clapton has been doing since the ’80s…Liverpool Slim is a solid effort from start to finish…

Still in possession of the vocal chops to do his songs justice, The Ballad…is a decent collection of white boy r ‘n’ b, soul and southern rock

…devotees of mellow soulful rock should find much to entertain them…
