"...blues fans who've despaired at the lack of fresh new voices coming out of Chicago have reason to rejoice: a relatively young guitarist, steeped in the traditional postwar style, has finally stepped up with a well-conceived solo project, with the promise of more good things to come."
(David Whiteis - Living Blues)
"West Side Blues is the new release by guitarist/vocalist Vernon Harrington. Primarily a sideman throughout his 30-plus year career, Harrington steps out on his own for the first time with an album that owes its spirit to his West Side roots and guitar-playing here, the late and very great Magic Sam. West Side Blues is a studio album with a live feel. Harrington captured that after-hours, smokey-blues bar atmosphere."
(Beverly Zeldin-Palmer - Illinois Entertainer)
(Jean Luc Vabres - Juke Joint Blues and Soul)
(Karen Hanson - Today's Chicago Blues)
