All Music Guide (US)- Rock-a-way Lonesome Moon
"Full of purest rockabilly and Western bop, the Roy Kay Trio's Rock-a-Way Lonesome Moon is a superb third album that finds the drummerless trio sounding better than ever. Having delved deep into straight-up rockabilly on the group's first two albums, guitarist/vocalist Roy Kay, lead guitarist Mike Geglia, and upright bassist Robin Cady move on to '50s country here. The result is an utterly tuneful and danceable album that reveals the trio's knack for sparkling vocal harmonies and snappy guitar twang. This is especially true on tracks like Kay's "Cold Tears" and Geglia's "Two of a Kind," which bring to mind a more rockin' version of such classic acts as the Delmore Brothers and the Blue Sky Boys. It also doesn't hurt that the album was produced in Berlin by German roots rocker Axel Praefke on vintage recording equipment, giving the album a warm period '50s sound. Third time is definitely a charm for the Roy Kay Trio with Rock-a-Way Lonesome Moon"

"This one is hot – a gem in its tenacity and authenticity! The three piece – rhythm and take off guitars with an upright bass – move between swingin’ and frantic rockabilly with a couple of slower ballads. Musicianship is understated and makes each track work – no distortion or over cranked reverb pedals here. I guess the real test for an album like this is whether it sounds like it could have been recorded any time in the last 50 years – it definitely has a timeless feel."
