Blues Legend Papa George And His Solid New Album
As a lifelong lover of the blues, I was beyond thrilled to find out that blues legend Papa George had just released a new project this year. It is called ‘These Wheels’ and it has some of the best new blues music I have heard in recent memory. There is not a single dull moment. It is an honest display of Papa George’s many talents as an artist. He is rightfully counted among the greats of his genre such as Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf. It is a great listen and is already one of my favourites.
With so many tracks to choose from, it is hard to choose a top track. I actually have several. One of them is the hard rock, highway anthem ‘Headed South.’ It reminds me of ‘Born to Be Wild,’ but with an extreme blues twist. The chorus gives me major Rolling Stones vibes, but with a heavier sound. Papa George makes larger-than-life music that is ideal for blasting through a car radio. His music has real blood and it flows hot.
That is just one incredible song out of the many on this album. If you like that one, you will love the rest. It begs to be played again and again.
