I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Kim Wilson’s seventh solo album and first release in three years, Take Me Back is deep, authentic, and filled with the gut-wrenching blues sounds Kim has made famous for over 40 years.

Recorded live in the studio, in mono, Kim delivers the blues as his heroes did in the golden age of the genre in the 1950s. Kim and his all-star band muscle through 16 tracks with some new Wilson songs and a mix of some great blues and R&B gems by the likes of Jimmy Rogers, Jimmy Nolan, Larry Williams and more.

Over the last 10 years Kim has been the go-to harmonica player. He has recorded with Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy, Mark Knopfler, Paul Simon and Eric Clapton. Take Me Back was recorded at Big Jon Atkinson’s ultra-authentic Big Tone Studios. Kim Wilson invited some first-class blues musicians for the album including Billy Flynn, Barrelhouse Chuck, Big Jon Atkinson, Rusty Zinn and Kid Andersen.

Says Wilson: “To say that these recording sessions were enjoyable experiences would be a vast understatement! Not only are these fellas great musicians but they are also dear friends of mine and I want to thank them for the incredible performances that they gave.”
