Description

Whiskey Howl - Whiskey Howl CD. First time available on CD for this obscure Canadian funk-laden heavy blues rocker, originally released in 1972 by Warner Brothers. Whiskey Howl remains one of the great success stories of the early CanCon era. They were a blues band that enjoyed a large following, appeared on legendary concert bills and yet, they left only one (memorable) studio album. The record quickly garnered rave reviews and airplay on FM stations across Canada. And that was that. The LP took some time to come out; by the time it was released in 1972, the band had broken up. Anyone who likes driving harmonica blues should have this in their collection. The LP took a little while to come out after its recording; by the time it was released in 1972, the band had broken up. Canadians all tell me "What a band!": John Witmer, vocals; Michael Pickett, harp and vocals; Richard Fruchtman, bass and vocals; Dave Morrison, guitar and vocals and Wayne Wilson, drums. Even though they are virtually forgotten, this has got to be one of the best jumpin' blues albums out there, with versions of Memphis Slims Mother Earth, Louis Jordans Caldonia and Let The Good Times Roll and B.B. Kings Early In The Morning. It also featured an oddity in those days of electric Chicago blues, an a capella version of Leadbellys Rock Island Line. There are good originals on the album as well, and one can only speculate as to what might have happened if the bands momentum could have been maintained. Sadly, some of the original members are no longer with us to see the LPs return to existence.
