Fedora CD 5009
Willie Willis
Can't Help But Have the Blues

Willie Willis is back in the studio! This new record is even finer than Willie's "Down Home In Dallas" which was no small achievement in itself. There was a "loose, party-time" vibe in the studio and that comes through on the exuberant music on this CD. At the soundboard with producer Chris Millar was legendary Bob Sullivan, sound engineer behind works by such names as Zuzu Bollin, Anson & the Rockets, Bob Wills, the Fabulous Thunderbirds and even Elvis Presley. Willis' deep, low-down voice will remind you, at times, of Texas' classic blues shouter, Zuzu Bollin, and you'll be stirred by the rhythms of "If You Want To Get Funky" and the John Lee Hooker l'hommage, "Deep Ellum Boogie". With Willie are his long-time sax-playing friend, Wilford Sims and the great Hash Brown lending his guitar talents.

Willie Willis- vocals/guitar; Wilford Sims- saxophone; Jessie Ray- keyboards; Hash Brown- guitar; Bobby Henderson- bass; Roach- drums.

Tracks: Willie's Back; If You Wanna Get Funky; Willie's Blues; Deep Ellum Boogie; I Love A Woman; Laundromat Blues; Dallas Shuffle; What's On Your Mind; Can't Help But Have The Blues; Brothers Together.
