ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Little Wolf has been named 2007 Male Blues Vocalist of the Year by the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame. It is little wonder that Little Wolf, a Bay Area blues veteran, is being recognized for his amazing vocal style and riveting stage presence.

Little Wolf is not new to the national music scene. As a band leader and accomplished drummer in the early 80’s Malik managed and arranged backup bands for many blues luminaries like Big Joe Turner, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy McCracklin, and others. In the late 80’s and early 90’s Malik Shabazz and the Plus Factor were entertaining the Bay Area and beyond. Little Wolf has toured worldwide, making trips to Europe and Australia.

The current Hellcat band includes some serious blues veterans including bass player Chuck Trijillo who played with John Lee Hooker in the 70s and was named the 2007 Bass Player of the Year.

Doug Logan's guitar playing is refreshingly true to the music while being influenced by many modern players.

David Sobel's piano and organ expertise is evedent immediately. He lays down a perfect groove and soars to powerful heights on his solos.

Brian Burson is a rock solid pocket drummer usually playing a 3 piece kit and shy about solos. He plays regularly with Bernard Anderson and played and recorded with the late-great Red Archibald.

Eddie Soye


Little Wolf is an impressive Howlin' Wolf imitator and he is backed by an impressive band. He also shows he is a capable songwriter by the one original on the cd. However the decision to use so many standards is in my opinion a mistake and that is why I have only awarded it 3*. In spite of that this is a solid band and the cd is recommended with reservations

Little Wolf has a voice of a true bluesman. It's so deep and can only belong to a person who lived the blues, not just played them. Together with a tight band and emotional takes on well chosen covers that makes a CD to buy, for all blues lovers. Great!

IT’S REALLY A JOY TO LISTEN TO THIS BAND
“IT’S REALLY A JOY TO LISTEN TO THIS BAND: LOW DOWN AND SWINGIN’. LITTLE WOLF IS A GREAT SINGER WHO GIVES GREAT PERFORMANCES ALL OVER THE CD. WITH HIS PHANTASTIC HELLCATS IN THE BACK AND A MASTERFUL SOUND THIS ONE HIS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL BLUES LOVERS!”

Kathleen Lawton, KCSM-FM, "Crazy 'Bout the Blues"

Smokin' album from a dynamite group!
Red-hot CD from a tight band with a killer vocalist. If you like your blues with a lot of grit and grinding rhythm, Little Wolf and the Hellcats will speak straight to your soul. This is not fusion. This is not rock. This is the real deal, folks: this is the blues!
