Editorial Reviews

The young James Hunter's LP debut from 1986, just goes to show that he was always a great singer - a natural. Released under the pseudonym of Howlin' Wilf & The Vee-Jays, this is the first time it has been released on CD. Hunter recorded his first solo album for Ace in 1996 - "Believe What I Say" (CDCHD 636). The album featured a guest appearance by Van Morrison and Hunter has regularly appeared with Van on stage. His third album "People Gonna Talk" has proved to be James' breakthrough album and he is now on a major US tour with Boz Scaggs.Morrissey fans will be interested to know that it is produced by Boz Boorer

Format: Audio CD
Howlin' Wilf and the Vee-Jays, led by James Hunter (of People Gonna Talkfame), came onto the scene in the mid-1980s and was together for only a brief time before disbanding. A pity, since their strong, polished homage to blues, early rock, and soul really shines on Cry Wilf! from 1986. Hunter plays blues harp, guitar, and sings, while guitarist Dot and bassist Tony Hilton round out the crew.

Cry Wilf! is basically a cover album with a few original tunes thrown in; the reverse of what Hunter would include on his three solo albums ...Believe What I Say (1996), Kick It Around(2001), and People Gonna Talk(2006), including songs by Lee Dorsey (Ya Ya), Barbara Lewis (Hello Stranger), Ike Turner (Get Over It Baby), Walter Jacobs (Boom Boom), and Willie Dixon (Mellow Down Easy). The original songs Got A Thing For You, Same Old Nuthin', Can't Stand It No More and Shake It hold up well compared to the established classics in their fidelity to retro songwriting and instrumentation.

Hunter plays a mean blues harp, a talent which I didn't know he possessed based on his later solo work and stints with Van Morrison. His guitar chops are also solid, at times borrowing from established bluesmen, at times straying into Chuck Berry territory and even a touch of surf guitar.

This is a top album from what was a great live band. I would heartily recommend checking out James Hunter ( the lad with the Mouth harp ) next time he is in your town.

Best Blues ever. I can't believe Cry Wilf doesn't receive more air play.. Today's issues with old school flare. NICE....

I just don't get why more people don't know about James Hunter. This is an early cd and although not as great as his later work, I love it too. He is so incredible, go see him live.
