A dynamite blend of original blues & swing featuring guest appearances by some of Canada's finest blues legends: Dutch Mason, Donnie "Mr.Downchild" Walsh, Jack de Keyzer, Tony D & more!
Second cd for Big Daddy G features great guitar, swinging B3 organ plus one of the top harmonica players around.
There are several different guest vocalists on this CD. With one of the guest vocalists being a bona-fide Canadian blues legend in the name of Richard “Hock” Walsh, original vocalist from Downchild Blues Band, they are already off to a rousing start. His 3 appearances on the CD are easily recognizable and it is clear that he is still in top form after all these years.
With other guest artists such as Johnny V (if you’ve seen Eddy `The Chief’ Clearwater perform in the past year or so then you’ve seen Johnny V as well) playing some tasty slide guitar on “Crosseyed Cat” how can you go wrong.
This CD is very special, because this is my first duo CD. It gives me the chance to record a few of my favourite songs in a small formation. We used only one guest musician per song. We tried to make our version of these songs as simple as possible. 'So that the pure sound of the guitar and voices might stand out. That you might drift into the story and feel the mood of the moment.Most of the songs on this CD are recorded for easy listening. We chose mostly slower songs and we tried to give them all a little touch of Blues.–by Big Daddy Wilson
After the positive responds and success of the "Love Is The Key" CD and the "Love Is The Key Tour" the mission was simple and clear to me, to use this platform to spread love everywhere I go. The goal was to produce a fully acoustic CD, using the guys that I am on the road with "The Big Daddy Wilson Trio". Singing and playing the songs that my forefathers played. Using this special gift that "The Almighty" gave me.
That is why this new album is so special to me, it is really the second leg of the "Love Is The Key Tour". The journey "Thumb A Ride". It is not about where you have been or where you are going, it is all about the journey. It is about what you have learned along the way, and who you may have touched and those who have touched you. On this journey I have been blessed and touched by so many beautiful people…
