The son of legendary bluesman Muddy Waters, Mud Morganfield and Fabulous Thunderbird frontman Kim Wilson come together for this tribute release. FOR POPS (A TRIBUTE TO MUDDY WATERS) represents some of Mud’s 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” it’s clear that the apple truly doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kim Wilson lives up to his reputation as the finest purveyor of the "Little Walter" harmonica style by laying down some of his best work to date. Backing them is the crack 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. We’re certain “Pops” is proud of his boy.
