Walter "Wolfman" Washington
On the Prowl
Rounder Records' Bullseye Blues is issuing a series of blues primers for the lovers of the spicy sounds of
the blues. These releases are individual collections of an artist's work, culled with loving care to give the
new/experienced listener a comprehensive introduction/review to the wonderful music. I listened to two of the CD's
(the other is The Persuasions) from this series
and all I can say is that I would love to get them all. They are brilliant collections that move you to the groove
and loosen your spirit to immense heights of pleasure...
W "W" W is a funky bluesman from New Orleans with a silky, soulful approach to his sound that recalls the Blues
greats and yet remains true and original to his individual style and calling. His performance is a cross between some
romantic jazz breeze and a emotional bluesy adventure full of passion and emotion.
This collection is a superb compilation from his three previous albums which makes it a great place to start appreciating
this original artist.
