The son of legendary bluesman Muddy Waters, Mud Morganfield and Fabulous Thunderbird frontman Kim Wilson come together for this tribute release. FOR POPS represents some of Muds favorite songs from his father including the iconic I Just Want to Make Love to You plus Blow wind Blow and Just to Be With You. When you hear Mud belt out his version of the classic My Dog Can't Bark its clear that the apple truly doesnt fall far from the tree. Kim Wilson lives up to his reputation as todays purveyor of Little Walter's harmonica style by laying down some of his finest work to date. Backing them is the crack Severn Records team of Billy Flynn and Rusty Zinn (guitars), Barrelhouse Chuck (Piano) Steve Gomes (bass) and Robb Stupka (drums). FOR POPS only scratches the surface of the impressive catalog left by the master bluesman, but this collection is a must for Blues fans everywhere. Were certain Pops is proud of his boy. Packaged in Digipak format.
