It's always a pleasure to get hold of a new Webb Wilder musical collection and Mississippi Moderne from Landslide Record, while not the best by a goodly measure, is nonetheless riddled with some dandy tunes which tickle many of the anticipated themes and styles that Webb Wilder and his band The Beatnecks trip into. I'd prefer less vintage blues and more stylish melodies and catchy lyrics, but that's this fan.
I haven't been able to see The Beatnecks for a few years now and I'm actually getting in the mood again, especially with a few new tunes to look forward to in the live set. If you haven't sampled Webb Wilder, you should definitely give this Mississippi native a go. You'll not regret it.
