"Clive is a guitarist who can make one guitar sound like six. Barnes transported the entire, hushed venue across the Atlantic to where the paths taken by the Delta Blues, Tom Waits and Bruce Springsteen all led to his own special territory. Balancing intensity with between song banter that would challenge any stand-up, Barnes' songs were a revelation."
