From gospel roots and playing baseball in the Tupelo, Mississippi cotton fields with his childhood ‘playmate’ Elvis Presley, to living and playing the blues with the likes of Hound Dog Taylor, Elmore James, Luther Allison, Magic Sam and Muddy Waters, Willie Pooch’s life story is a fascinating one.

Willie Pooch is the real deal – at times you’ll hear the influences of blues’ greats and then you’ll remember that this is Willie Pooch – who may very well be the next blues great.

This, his first solo recording, aligns him with rising superstar, …organ marvel…*, producer, and funk-from-the-soul-master, Tony Monaco on a set that will blow you away!

While doing traditional blues proud, these ain’t no ordinary blues, these ‘here’ are funk-n-blues; Willie Pooch’s Funk-n-Blues.
