Album Notes
Ranging in styles from swamp country and Texas swing to Chicago and Piedmont blues, this collection of roots music conjures up echoes of everyone from Jimmy Reed and Clarence "Gatesmouth" Brown to Guy Clark and Rod Bernard. Wills effortlessly shifts between blues and jazz. A "must have" for serious collectors of blues music!

Everyone associated with the Texas music scene knows Bert Wills as truly a Texas Blues-Rock legend. Known for his wide variety of music styles, Bert is an all 'round' musician, writing and singing great blues as you will find on his first two recordings Mr. Politician and Special Session and once again on his fourth release Tell Me Why. His third release Pavones Sunset steps away from traditional blues and enters the surf music genre. This cd release is licensed to legendary surfer/filmmaker, Herbie Fletcher for use in Fletcher's surfing film, Stylemasters. Bert's music earned Grammy nominations in 1995 and 1996.

This CD is absolutely FANTASTIC!
Tell Me Why is an excellent blues CD and Bert Wills is a bluesman extraordinaire without exception. Daddy's Prayer and Precious One are my favorites, but The Bounce is excellent too! Every song is super!
