“THE NEED FOR TWEED” WINS “TAMMIE AWARD ” for BEST ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2013 as awarded by Art Eldstein from the TIMES ARGUS on December 26th 2013 issue. Art also gave a glowing review of the CD in the Arts & Entertainment section in The Times Argus & Rutland Herald on November 7, 2013. “Chris Robertson is a great musician. His command of the slide is superb. He’s got the voice to match the swagger one would expect from a music this drenched in electrons and amplifier tubes. He also writes excellent songs.”
More praise from Burlington VT 7 DAYS Music Editor Dan Bolles: “Robertson’s fierce playing and cheeky songwriting lend the record a welcome air of vitality.” There is a playful quality to Robertson’s music that suggests he doesn’t take himself too seriously, even though his prodigious abilities would justify it if he did.” “Robertson is and elite player,” “whether in his bluesy growl or fiery slide riffs, his performances are energetic as as polished as gleaming chrome.” ” He is a worthy keeper of the rock-&-roll flame.” (Read complete article from 7 Days Dec-18-25, 2013 Volume 19, #16 or on Facebook: Christopher B. Robertson.
