"Bernie Townsend is a singer to rival the best, his voice having the firm confidence of Bad Company's Paul Rodgers, but with greater character"

JOHN ORME - MELODY MAKER (1977)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The combination of the power and range of Bernie Townsend's voice fully justifies the press comparisons with Paul Rodgers and this together with his prolific songwriting abilities is leading the band on a ground breaking journey"

JOHN STANLEY - FREELANCE MUSIC JOURNALIST - (1977)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Forever Young - The Rescue - A refreshing new album from The Rescue who have secured an American release with Aspirion Records, one of the leading new record companies in Nashville. A 13 track album with 12 original songs from Bernie Townsend. The theme of the album is today's Country with some influence from the Americana genre and featuring stellar musicianship and some great harmonies which makes for an essential album to have in anyone's collection - we will play this a lot"

LEE WILLIAMS - CMR NASHVILLE - (2007)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Forever Young - The Rescue - I love the album, well worth the wait for sure ! Bernie Townsend should be congratulated for taking the unorthodox route - like Paul Kennerley did with "White Mansions" many years ago. That was ground breaking and this project is as close as anyone has got to that since"

STUART CAMERON - COUNTRY MUSIC NEWS - (2007)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"MADE ON NEW STREET is the new collection from singer-songwriter Bernie Townsend. While some of the tracks will be targeting the country music market it is clear the music will have a life beyond that and there are many songs here that should find favour among those DJ's who are free to play music which is a little left of centre. If you are looking for an album that will fit nicely onto daytime radio on mainstream radio stations you'll be disappointed as there is nothing here that ticks the boxes of those music directors, but, if you're after something which is different and original as an alternative to disposable pop music then you may well be pleasantly surprised"

STUART CAMERON - HOTDISC (2012)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Wow! A great song and a beautiful video. The track features a piano, guitar and horn driven arrangement that is a perfect vehicle for the delivery of the heartfelt story that is "Just Won't Touch Me Now" by Bernie Townsend - the visual mix of lesser known library images and images from personal collections is extremely poignant and highlights the power and sensitivity of the lyrics. We are aware of the impact that this tribute is having among Vietnam Veterans and believe this song will resonate on both sides of the Atlantic"

LEE WILLIAMS - CMR NASHVILLE - (2015)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Just bought the album. Thanks for the song and the donation to the VVA. Very emotional and accurate lyrics on the song "Just Wont Touch Me Now".

TOM HOHMANN - Vietnam Veteran - (February 2015)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"For me its been 49 years and I still see their faces. Nothing can erase what happened when we came home, nothing can heal that kind of pain, not even time. Thank you Bernie Townsend and Gravel Road Records for not forgetting us"

GARY LORD - Vietnam Veteran - (May 2015)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Very well written and composed, thanks for remembering us...no one ever understood how hard we tried over there and when we got back home"

MARTIN KEY - Vietnam Veteran - (May 2015)
