#314 – Kim Wilson – Fabulous T-Birds Singer Goes Back to His Roots For Blues & Boogie vol one

Founding member and vocalist for the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Kim Wilson, has enjoyed hit albums, sold out concerts and even ┬ávideos on MTV, but his latest project takes him back to where it all started – Blues and Boogie Volume One is a collection of raw blues, done the old-fashioned way. The 16 tracks give Wilson a chance to honor some of his idols, like James Cotton, Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson, while also throwing in some of his originals which fit perfectly with the mood.

He reveals how he was able to channel that vintage sound on his new material. ┬áPlus, he talks the crazy success of the Fabulous Thunderbirds’ hit “Tuff Enuff.”
