Taking a page from my pal Deborah Blake and offering a quick contest that’ll get you a copy of Chapel of Ease and–although it’s totally unrelated–one of the great albums of the late 80s that you’ve probably never heard.
Back in that long-ago time, my friend Hays introduced me to the music of Mississippi’s own Webb Wilder. His album Hybrid Vigor remains one of the few all-killer-no-filler discs that has held up to this day, 27 years later, from the opening chords of “Hittin’ Where It Hurts” to the final spoken “Ungawah!*”
I stumbled across an extra copy of it this weekend (because I ain’t giving away mine) at Frugal Muse in Madison. For a chance to win it, and a signed copy of Chapel of Ease, simply leave a comment below and tell me about your favorite all-killer-no-filler album before midnight Thursday. And of course, in the meantime, try to live by the Webb Wilder Credo:
