"Live Volume One"
"Little Buster’s ’Live Volume One’ is a compilation of two Japanese Gigs: Osaka June 1993 and Tokyo December 1996. Buster Forehand’s powerful gritty vocals and crisp innovative guitar playing are the highlights on these Rhythm and Blues recordings. Some of the great tracks are ’I’ve Been Watching You’, ’Tougher Than Tough’, ’Buster’s Swing Blues’ and the eleven minute closing tune: the brilliant ’Just Let Me Burn’, defiantly worth checking out".- John Bates

"Little Buster is a Soulful Singer and Guitar Player and his arrangements are pure laid back cool! he is an excellent Guitar Player. What really stands out the most is his great Vocal delivery. If you love true Guitar Virtuosity and love a Blue edge to your Soul Music then this is a CD you better get.- Biggdaddy WALLA WALLA BLUES SOCIETY

"Live https://www.tradebit.com"
"Recorded live in Japan in 1993 and 1996, Buster is as good a Blues Guitarist as you’ll get to hear, and vocally he ain’t bad either! Put it together and you get a storming Show and these must have been a blast to attend. Live Albums you either love them or hate them, and usually I fall in the later bracket but this set is full of exuberance and quality, from the warm Swing Blues through to deep deep soul. ’What Can I Do’, as a studio number is tailor made for the Northern Scene. ’That’s What I Want To Do’ is mellow yet deep, classic live 60’s Southern Soul with a lazy lilting sax, a controlled building performance that retains your attention through to it’s climax some 9 minutes later. Great stuff. Each track is pretty much a different style showing great versatility to portray all things R’n’B. The straight Blues of ’Just Let Me Burn’ is a great showcase of Buster’s guitar playing".- Mike Ashley LIFE & SOUL PROMOTIONS, UNITED KINGDOM.

"Live Volume One"
A Blues treasure that has been sadly overlooked for much of his Career, this collection culled from Concerts in Japan in the mid 90’s will hopefully wake more of the world up to the talents of Little Buster Forehand. B.B. King once said that "Buster was the only one that could fill his shoes". From the stellar displays of his gruff, soulful Vocals in the peppy shuffle of "What Can I Do" and the sultry "I’ve Been Watching You" to the blistering Guitar antics in "Just Let Me Burn," the Music here lends serious credibility to B.B.’s statement.- Mark E.
