As silky smooth as it is down and dirty, No Place to Fade, the first CD by Chicago trio Blue Plate Special makes you wonder where these guys have been for so long. Tunes like Homework are reminiscent of the greats like Albert Collins, but roll the ball forward with a uniquely rich, dynamic texture. Taken as a whole, the disc has a very full sound (especially from a trio), with plenty of saturation and few sensory gaps. When Michaels sings, every phrase is a testament. The production is immaculate without being overly polished--everything sounds completely live. No Place to Fade is a superior accomplishment. Bob Gabrella - In The Mix - 1998
