Flying Fish by Chris Wilson

Flying Fish is the latest offering from blues trailblazer and national treasure Chris Wilson. This man has been delivering blisteringingly good records for many a year now and this is certainly no exception.

Alongside his own brilliant originals, he has chosen impeccably to cover songs from Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Johnny Cash and Bill Monroe. Instrumentally, it’s a stripped-back affair, mostly featuring just the man himself with an acoustic guitar and, of course, some scintillating harmonica and that voice. Damn right – I got the blues!
