The revue is an expertly curated celebration of Dick's hysterical, gently scandalous oeuvre: a peephole into his brilliant life. Each song flows effortlessly into the next, even though they tackle subjects as diverse as Jesus, hillbillies, la Nouvelle Vague, and table manners.

-Jillian Owens, The Austin Chronicle

Anybody who knows Price's work – and it's a relatively small group – knows Price singing it. He's never pursued fame or even a substantial audience. Most of his music was circulated through cassette tapes he sent to friends himself or on the Dial-a-Tune service he maintained from his home for close to two decades (on which he'd record a new song every day!), and his fan base grew because somebody who had heard his work would tell a friend, "You have to hear this." His closest brush with fame was through the Dr. Demento radio show, which played a few dozen songs through the years.

-Robert Faires, The Austin Chronicle
