Album Notes
Charles Wilson has been a major seller in the Soul, Blues & Southern Soul world for years. Scoring hits with Ichiban, Ecko, Wilson and other labels. Charles was nominated for a W.C. Handy Award (now simply “Blues Music Awards”) for his acclaimed LP for Delmark Records, which featured Little Milton, his uncle. But Charles’ new CD is his masterpiece. Combining real Soul ala Johnnie Taylor on the club jams “That Boom!” & “The After Party” to the Tyrone Davis-styled Southern Soul of “Plumber Man”, the Theodis Ealey-style Southern Soul bump of "Watch It Shake" to the rich Gerald Levert-worthy balladry of “Broke Into My Heart”. Grade A songs with big league production by former Cameo member Simeo! The must have CD of 2007!

“He (Charles Wilson) is a singular talent that holds the key to the future evolution of the soul-blues in the grain of his voice” so said Thom Jurek of All Music Guide.

**CD Review**

by Calvin Lee Hill (edited by

**** 1/2 Other than the all Blues thang he did with his Uncle Little Milton ("If Heartaches Were Nickels" on Delmark Records), I've been waiting for my man Charles Wilson to make a record that truly lives up to his potential. And he sho 'nuff does on this one. 10 brand new southern soul songs (plus the 11th hidden bonus track "Mississippi Boy") produced by Simeo. Every song could be a hit. "That Boom!" does just that. "That girl won't dance no more without that boom ba-boom boom boom". Oh Lawwwd that's a jammmy. Producer Simeo locks this one down tight! I'd like to see you girls get low to this joint! It's got just a touch of R & B the way Johnnie Taylor's "Good Love" had. If this don't tear up the clubs than y'all should just switch to Polka dagnabbit! Up next is to me a homage to Tyrone Davis called "Plumber Man". I remember this great song from a couple years ago by a brutha named James Smith (the writer) and I couldn't understand why it didn't explode up the charts. Betcha this time it will. I've already heard it on the radio. Man, just as good is "Watch It Shake" that sounds like something Theodis Ealey should've done. This one's gonnna be huge. Same goes for the dance floor joints "The After Party", "That's The Way We Want It" and the sly "You're the Shhh". Here Charles say, "Girl, every time I see you all I think about is sex/My mind goes from PG to Rated X. You're the shh/Ooh baby you got that something I wanna hit". Get it? Ha! Ooh shut yer mouth!

On the slow tip we have the super sweet "Broke Into My Heart" and "Candlelight" that reminds me a lot of Marvin Gaye. Even snatches a line from "Sexual Healing". Then there's "I'll Follow That Thang". Best sangin' I've heard from Mr. Wilson. My boy Simeo ain't not bad none neither. He sings a duet with Charles on "Christmas In Memphis". Another smash fo' sho. This is Charles' best record yet.

the after party
wow,i really love this song, it's the kind of song that makes you get out of your seat!!!


plumber man

Everyday Music Co


Charles Wilson has a great mixture of old school and new. Mr. Wilson doesn't try and take himself (voice)out of his comfort zone, which is a plus on this CD.
A job well done !
