Album Notes
Unadorned, with little or no production, these twelve originals and one traditional tune on "Raw" were cut live in the studio. Scorching slide guitar slathered like habanero sauce over his very original blues. The Sauce Boss uses no effects on his 53 Telecaster or his 59 Les Paul Special. No need when you put them through a Fender Pro Amp made in 1948. The authentic “sound” is the foundation that “Outlaw Blues”, “All That Meat and No Potatoes”, “The Shakes”, and “Deep in the Shed” all have.

“Hurricane Blues” was written, played, and sung by someone with first hand experience. Florida native, Bill “The Sauce Boss” Wharton has weathered more
than a few hurricanes. And after playing and serving his famous gumbo to Katrina survivors in Louisiana, as well as homeless people all over the USA, he righteously sings the blues.

“Sweet Stuff” is as sweet and funky as the stuff he’s singing about. “Taxi in
the Rain” and “Left Handed Smile” are nailed. Both are ballads without the schmaltz. “Every Inch of Your Body” and “A Hundred Times a Day” are reminiscent of old Southern Rocking Blues. Sauce Boss covers the traditional, rollicking, “Digging My Potatoes” to kick off the disc. So with love and potatoes, the Sauce Boss sincerely sends his sound.

Don't miss the chance to add this kick*ass CD to your collection. Bill is really cookin' on this one, especially when he plays his "fryin pan"!

Jon S Wagner

Sweet Stuff indeed
You can’t go wrong with this album. Start to finish, not a weak track in the bunch. It ranks right up there with anything he’s done. Stop reading my review and buy it!


The title says it all...
...a great CD! The Sauce Boss and his Ingredients did it again, releasing another package of kickin' blues material. The trio played in top form. I can't wait to see them live. Hoping they stop by in the Carolinas soon.

I bought this CD for my new girl friend and she hasn't stopped smiling. And she makes sure I'm always smiling too. ;-) Thanks Sauce Boss!!!

Don Alford

A lot of fun!


Great Music! All of Bill Wharton's music is energetic and well written. I particularly like Sweet Stuff on Raw.

I love any blues related music. Ther is even a little country related sound to it. Every Inch of Your Body and A Hundred Times A Day are terrific.

Wayne Davis

I think this is great blues music. I love it!
