BILL WATTS - PROBLEMS

Chicago r&b/ bluesman Bill Watts is a complete mystery to me. He released at least 3 45's, and he handled the lion's share of writing/ production/ performing. Beyond that....

What separates this song from the average blues number to my ears in the RHYTHM; this song could have easily fallen into a lazy shuffle and sounded OK, but the use of congas just DRIVES this track.

As always, if you know anymore please write.

from c1965...

This is great, Derek! And it's, well, rare to hear a bluesman singing about hoping to move OUT of Chicago to the suburbs due to muggings!
