Album Notes
The Way Things Go is a fresh take on traditional Blues from the veteran Bluesman. Cleveland Fats once again shows that he is a master singer, guitarist, and songwriter highlighting his talents on 9 originals and 3 covers. This recording includes the re-teaming with his former boss and mentor Robert Lockwood, Jr, with whom Fats' has been working with for nearly 25 years.

This album also features Chicago Blues legends Aron Burton on Bass (Albert Collins & the Icebreakers, as well as session player for Alligator and other labels), Dave Jefferson (Willie Kent & the Gents, and top session player) and keyboard duties shared by Aaron Moore (Muddy Waters), Ariyo, and Vince Willis. Top that off with the legendary Billy Branch on Harmonica and Earwig Music Company CEO and blues historian Michael Frank as producer, and you have an unbeatable combination.

“This is Cleveland Fats at his best, from the fantastic guitar playing to his rough vocals, all the way to his superb songwriting. I give this one the thumbs up!” -Gene Fontana (Diamond State Blues Society)
