Honest and Soulful.
-Bend Bulletin April 2006
As it stands, there is no weak number on this album (Southside of Sorrow) and it proves James Sasser is to be recognizedâ€¦First class album 4 starsâ€¦
â€“Rootstime.be February 2005
Southside of Sorrow is the kind of disc that remains a pleasure time after time.
-Muziek Wereld November 2004, â€“Ctrl. Alt. Country.com September 2004
On this CD, it is â€œThat Kind of Day,â€ with distorted harmonica soloing wildly in the background; this is the kind of song you can let loose to. And if country contributed anything to American music, itâ€™s songs that beg a hearty â€œYeehaw!â€
-Music Liberation Project June/July 2004
This local gent markets himself as Modern-Vintage Country. The title simply means that Sasser has salvaged the best of Dwight Yoakamâ€™s drawl and Buddy Hollyâ€™s pop from the country music junk pile.
-Willamette Week May 2004
Very impressed with the organic honesty of his songs crafting and performanceâ€¦(James Sasser) has a unique voice which is quite signature and individual
-Taxi.com June 2004
When I went to see Pete Anderson and Moot Davis the other night, I was somewhat disappointed to find out there were two opening bands before the headliners. Especially when I found out they were local groups that I had not heard of. Was I ever wrong. This James Sasser band really rocked, was really tight, and had great harmonies and original songs. I was so impressed. I really think this kid might make it big.
