ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The old-time spirit of The WIYOS mirrors that of the
medicine shows of the 1920's and 30's, when black
and white musical traditions mixed liberally and
genre distinctions didn't exist between blues and
country, ragtime and gospel, or swing and hillbilly
music. Accordingly, The WIYOS write songs that are
equally influenced by music from the Blue Ridge
Mountains and New York City, mixing the more
urbane sounds of Django Reinhardt, the Gershwin
brothers and Fats Waller with the unrefined country
fervor of Gary Davis, Doc Watson and Skip James.
The WIYOS make music that will transport you back
to an era when vaudeville performers were skilled
entertainers as well as accomplished songwriters
and instrumentalists. In this "pre-war" American
culture, music was made for personal enjoyment
and community gatherings - farmers, miners,
teachers, salesmen, preachers, gamblers and
traveling artists sharing songs on front porches and
in town squares for the pure pleasure of making
music with their hands and hearts.

These guys are really into this stuff!
I came into this music through Jim Kweskin and actually played in a jug band for a couple of years, so I jumped on the CD after I had heard a few tracks. The sound and feel of the 20's and 30's have really been captured and I love the excitement the band brings to this genre.

American music through and through...
This CD has grown on me as time has passed. At first I just liked a few tunes, but each time the other songs start to blossom right before your eyes. Ragtime and folk music combined here with some experimentation in the vocal arena (Tom Waits would be proud of the bullhorn type vocals on a couple songs). Great CD and worth a purchase from this very busy band.

Great fun, very lively
Like the case says, the music could have come right out of the 20's and 30's. It's very lively, for the most part. Well written and creative. Great sounds and voices. Give something different a try.

Absolutely Great
This CD is delightful. After buying my copy, I ordered 3 to give as gifts for Christmas. Not a bad track on the disk. This is one you'll listen to over and over.

Love at first sight!
I saw the Wiyos play at the Blues Festival in Kalamazoo and it was 'love at first sight'...Their music seemed familiar to me in some strange way...Love that harmonica!

Doc Malone from Code Blue

Great musicianship!!
Well recorded, fun music with excellent harp, guitar, bass, and percussion. These gentlemen know their chops, but the delivery of the actual songs takes precedence over the technique. A recording that musicians will listen to over and over again. Great music for the living room or the car.

Thanks the Wiyos
I bought this very good CD after listening The Wiyos live in Central Park. These musicians are great and funny. Their music sounds like this old blues everyone like (even my mother like it). In the same time it's pretty subtile music, voices are really good, I mean everything is good so it is difficult to focus on only one aspect. it sounds good, people around me like it, the musicians are cool so don't hesitate buy that CD you'll have fun
