"Alan Tompkins has put together an unbelievable first album. The album opens with the song, “I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome,” which was written by the legendary Bill Monroe and Hank Williams. Amanda Smith co-sings this song with Tompkins, and their voices blend together wonderfully. The traditional “More Pretty Girls Than One” is another splendid track. Sam Bush plays mandolin on this song, while Kenny Smith sings with Tompkins. Tompkins has a pure tone to his vocal that really fits well for some of these duets. . . . If you like bluegrass, then you will love this album. The songs are great, the production is spectacular, and Tompkins knows how to deliver a great album!" - PowerSource Magazine
"There are cuts from this CD that will go straight to my favorites folder . . . While Tompkins may not try to combine careers as a lawyer and traveling bluegrass musician like Charlie Sizemore has, he’s put out a more-than-credible CD and it’s worth a listen by anyone who likes bluegrass music. You won’t be disappointed." Larry Stephens, LonesomeRoadReview.com.
“No Part of Nothin’ features great traditional music. From the Bill Monroe/Hank Williams penned tune I’m Blue, I’m Lonesome, to traditional pieces like Angelina Baker and More Pretty Girls Than One, Tompkins’s vocals and fine musicianship clearly shine throughout. He is also joined by a multiple-award winning group of musicians, including Sam Bush, Ron Stewart, Kenny and Amanda Smith, Greg Cahill, and Texas country artist Deryl Dodd.” - John Goad, Bluegrass Today
“Who doesn't dream of working with bluegrass greats like Sam Bush, Stephen Mougin, Ron Stewart, Randy Kohrs, Ned Luberecki, and Kenny & Amanda Smith? Very few people change dreams into reality, but I'm not surprised that Alan did. His baritone is up to the task of fronting the Dream Team Bluegrass Band on the old gospel standard, ‘This World Is Not My Home.’ Good job, Alan.” - Katy Daley, WAMU's Bluegrass Country
