2012 — Miles of Smiles (Live)

Cover art for Miles of SmilesBuy now!Label: Hittin The Note
Although they usually are associated with the Southern rock scene in Macon, GA during the ’70s, Wet Willie was always about R&B, funk, soul and greasy blues. They were a band best experienced in a live setting. Frontman Jimmy Hall was who Mick Jagger really wanted to be, and the group played with a fire that could burn down any venue. After a string of successful albums, Wet Willie called it a day in 1982, but now they are back and better than ever, as Miles of Smiles proves. Recorded in Woodstock GA back in August 2011, this album is full of high-octane music and captures the essence of a Wet Willie performance. The family-oriented group now consists of Jimmy on lead vocals, sax and harp, brother Jack on bass and sister Donna Hall-Foster on vocals. Joining them are long-time guitarist/vocalist Ric Seymour, with T.K. Lively on drums, Ricky Chancey on guitar and keyboardist Bobby Mobley.

Cover art for ManorismsClick to purchase Manorisms!Label: Capricorn
Released in 1977, Wet Willie's debut on their new label Epic entitled "Manorisms", was an excellent album which was more pop than their past southern "Dixie Rock" releases on the Capricorn label. Wet Willie's style had changed with the addition of new members into the band such as Larry Berwalk who replaced Ricky Hirsch on lead guitar,Theophilius Lively who replaced Lewis Ross on drums, Marshall Smith replaced Wick Larsen on guitar. Original members Jimmy Hall (lead vocals, harmonica & saxes), Jack Hall (bass & vocals) and Michael Duke (keyboards and lead vocals) still remained with the group.

The building on the cover is The Manor Studio in Shipton-on-Cherwell where much of the album was recorded. The record was digitally remastered and re-released by Wounded Bird Records.
