Album Notes
Iconic musicians including Doyle Bramhall Sr. pay tribute to “Guitar” Charley Wirz

Almost 30 years in the making, BIRD Records is finally releasing “Let That Right Hand Go” a collection of songs and tribute to Texas Guitar ­­­­­­­­­­­­Guru, Charley Wirz. Joined by Texas Blues Greats Doyle Bramhall Sr., Keith Ferguson, Guthrie Kennard, Darrell Nulisch, Marc Benno, Bruce Bolin, Benita Aterberry, Lou ‘Laser’ Bovis, Al ‘TNT’ Braggs, Mark Hickman and ‘Guitar’ Charley Wirz, Joe strips it down to deliver an historical record of the Texas Blues sound available August 28 on iTunes, and CD Baby.

Producer Clint Birdwell, of BIRD Records Texas, remarks: “’Let that right hand go!’ was a saying Charley Wirz used to yell at his favorite guitars players on stage wherever that might be. Charley Wirz was a genuine “Guitar Guru” and a guitar player's best friend. Whether you wanted to buy a guitar, needed a guitar repaired, or just wanted to hang out and talk guitars at his small shop on Harry Hines Boulevard in Dallas, Texas, Wirz was the man. One might run into Billy Gibbons, Jimmie or Stevie Ray Vaughan, Bugs Henderson, Gatemouth Brown or any number of Texas guitar gunslingers, because this was the place to hang!

Billy Gibbons of ZZ TOP chimes in: “Along the way, Charley developed many solid relationships with a host of musicians and stridently supported the local music scene. And, that’s part of the genesis that connected Smokin’ Joe Kubek and Doyle Bramhall who came together in 1984 which started this very work. Previously, neither had a record of their own yet Charley felt it important to take them both into the studio where the duo cut two songs, Freddie King’s “Drivin’ Sideways” and Doyle Bramhall’s “Other Side of Love” also featuring Charley on rhythm guitar.”

Smokin’ Joe adds: “Finally after many years, here it is friends. Lots of the greatest Blues Players have come from the Lone Star State of Texas, and these guys have influenced, inspired, and shaped contemporary blues from Jim Morrison, Bobby Blue Bland to SRV and more. This album started when I asked my dear friend Charley Wirz to help me put a 45 RPM out in 1984. It has been like a calling to get this rare recording out to the world, and I'm thankful for that.”

Passion For The Blues
This Blues Album cam highly recommended from a very close friend of mine. He had told me that Doyle Bramhall played on it. After Stevie had passed , I thought that was the end of the blues for me. My friend recommended Doyle , Smokin Joe, Marco Benno, and some rare recordings byCharlie Wirz. My friend really instilled the passion for the blues again. For that I will always treasure our friendship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


The Best!
