REVIEW:
by Bruce Eder
The group's official swan song, Which One's Willie? is a smooth, slick exit, mixing some fine Mike Duke originals with covers of material associated with Wilson Pickett and Eddie Floyd, all presented in an alluring if slightly repetitive manner. There's enough good singing to keep it from being completely ignored at the time, but the dance quotient can't compensate for the relative lack of any real soul numbers.

Soooooooo long I have looked for a copy of this album... This is absolutely the only copy I have ever found available for download... I new it would surface some day, if I just kept looking and didn't give up... Nice cover art to boot.. I can finally scratch it off the I will be lucky if I ever find list... Now if I can just find The Epic Recordings, my collection will be complete... 10x! Thank You So Much... Made My Day!

Glad to help BC. I shoot my cover art with a 5 megapixel Sony P&S and then reduce the image to 25% which is usually more than enough for the Ipod or blog pics.....
Do tell though....what exactly are "The Epic Recordings"? Do you mean the Epic label Wet Willie albums? If yes then I believe this one and Manorisms are the only 2 they did for Epic, although I could be wrong....

You are right Tom. They combined them both into one LP titled The Epic Recordings. I have Manorisms, and thanks to you I now have Which One's Willie... I have never heard The Epic Recording LP. I don't know if there is any actual difference in it compared to the originals, although I heard there were some subtle differences? Something to keep and eye out for. Thanks again...
