1964 "Judy Roderick: Ain't Nothin' But the Blues is a striking debut by an early twentyish girl folk singer with an obviously strong sense of blues style. Her phrasing, drive and vocal control take her on a frequently soaring exploration of sophisticated blues…Miss Roderick is an obviously important new talent and we should be hearing a lot more from her and about her."
