We gave it a B+

William Clarke may hail from Los Angeles, but his harmonica playing comes straight from the South Side of Chicago. In the grand tradition of Little Walter, who wailed on harp for Muddy Waters, Clarke comes on like a banshee in Blowin’ Like Hell, with a harsh, keening sound that gives his workmanlike blues an elemental force. When Clarke sings, you like it, but when he blows the harp, you believe it. B+
