  • Recorded at Pacifica Studios, Culver City, California. Includes liner notes by Dick Shurman.
  • All songs written by William Clarke except "Lillipop Mama" (Roy Brown) and "Lonesome Bedroom Blues" (Jones).
  • The title says it all. William Clarke cooks on Blowin' Like Hell, his first CD. And these are new sounds. Songs like "Lollipop Mama," "Gambling for My Bread," and "Lonesome Bedroom Blues" (all written by Clarke) are just great tunes. "Must Be Jelly" won Clarke a W.C. Handy Award for blues song of the year in 1991. You'll find yourself humming them. Clarke's timing and music are right on the money, with the great Alex Schultz on lead guitar. There is no doubt that Clarke is one of the few modern bluesmen who are exploring and extending the amplified blues harp tradition without violating any of its principles. No one plays chromatic blues harp with this kind of passion and sheer conviction. Hear for yourself. ~ Michael Erlewine
Professional Reviews
