'As a friend of Redd's sons, Colonel & Billy in the late 60's, I had the opportunity to meet Redd several times. He was always a gracious and humble man, considering his incredible achievements in music.
Although his songwriting is most often mentioned, he had a golden voice and excellent phrasing. His work is truly timeless. Far too little of his work is currently available. I look forward to the release of the CD's that are in the works.' (Bill Riddle)
