This is a reissue, originally released 1990, issued posthumously in the memory of harmonica virtuoso William Clarke, who plays prominently along with his band. Both frequently performed together at Wilson’s Pioneer Club and their close friendship is reflected in the musical interaction of Wilson’s Mississippi roots mixed with Clarke’s hard-blowin’ harp attack. Wilson described his life best in “Tell Me What Do You See” with the words, “I’ve been all around the world/And blues is all I know to play.” Other greats hop along for the ride, including keyboardist Fred Kaplan, and Mighty Flyers alumni Junior Watson and Alex Schultz. It’s no accident that Wilson has some of Howlin’ Wolf’s vocal mannerisms on the song named after the Wolf himself. The story is that Wolf “willed” his voice to Wilson during one of Wolf’s shows. ~Review by Char Ham
