Watermelon Slim - The Wheel Man
A lot of blues musicians are called legends. I think if anyone should be called a legend, or a legend-in-the-making, Watermelon Slim would be my choice. This man is the real deal. As far as I can tell, this guy was born for the blues. He’s got the look, the voice and the talent. In fact, Watermelon Slim brings hope to a suffering and bland blues world in my humble opinion. Check out this latest release and see for yourself if the blues just got real all of a sudden instead of some rehashed, blues wannabe.
