Howlin' Wolf's voice was so gravelly, it was said he gargled nails. The Tail Dragger sounds like he starts each day with thumbtacks. But he is more than Wolf lite; the Tail Dragger is his own artist. With several guests from the contemporary Chicago blues scene--Rockin' Johnny, Billy Branch, Eddie Shaw, and Jimmy Dawkins among them--his music is solidly contemporary.

His sound was groomed in dark Chicago clubs, and he draws out his material with plenty of club-inspired jamming. "You Gotta Go" is sung to a neighbor, made powerful by the intimacy of the line "Your son is selling dope, your daughter on the corner too." The guitar is Mississippi delta-inspired, and the saxophone wails like a swinging cat still in the 1950s. Tail Dragger sings Howling Wolf's "Ooh Baby," and his voice is uncannily like the original. You ever gargled thumbtacks? (Robert Gordon)
