5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Wilko 16 Sep 2011
I have to disagree with one of the other reviewers here who thinks this is not one of Wilko's best. It is a little different in parts to the Wilko we're used to but I think it's a fantastic album and shows Wilko and the boys stretching into new territory with some brilliant 'Wilko-ised' covers of Van Morrison, Leadbelly and Bob Dylan. Their versions of He Ain't Give You None, and (incredibly) Listen To The Lion, both Van Morrison originals, are simply stunning. Who'd have thought Wilko could cover the latter and make it as good as Van's original ? But he certainly does ! Wilko's vocals are no Lee Brilleaux but because it's him and it's totally honest you can't help loving his voice, so reminiscent of that naughty schoolboy of the seventies, but with the lifeworn experience of time and maturity, and on Listen To The Lion you'll be blown away by the heartfelt passion and delivery. Through it all he plays that Telecaster the way a Tele should be played and it rings out loud and as true as ever. One of the greatest Englishmen we have - give him a medal !

5.0 out of 5 stars Still got it 3 Jan 2014

This is one for hardcore Wilko fans. He can sing to save his life but still manages to entertain us with his unique guitar style and heartfelt blues. Last track is fantastic - sung from the heart. Well done Wilko

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah, as the other bloke said. "Essential Wilko" 14 Aug 2013

And it's really good too. I love Wilko and think he's the best thing since sliced bread but I'm sure someone who didn't know Wilko, and listened to track one would think twice about the singing. I know Wilko likes to go into the studio and play it as a band - no fancy "separation" and engineer nonsense. He's rough and ready. He plays it like it is and this album sounds very live to me. Some of the other tracks are probably a bit less-than-great if I'm honest, but I love em and wouldn't have them any other way. From, A Buick 6 - sounds a lot like Dylan in a way, yet it's very Wilko. Great. Goodbye Baby is pure Wilko. A great R&B track. and on it goes.
At first I did think that Lead Belly's Western Plains was a bit odd with the lyric, Essex singing about Cowboys but it is damn good despite the "yippee yippee yay". 'He Aint give you none', wow! Brilliant.
Get the album and listen to a really nice, down to earth guy, play simple unadorned R&B.
On bass is Norman Watt-Roy. A better bass player you cant find. Blockheads and Wilko.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wilko confounds critics. 20 Nov 2012
Here Wilko takes us on a different musical adventure, one you had better be prepared for. This is -not- Dr.Feelgood or Solid Senders.
This is Wilko.
Raw Wilko.
'Red Hot Rocking Blues' opens, then we eventually get to 'He Ain't Give You None' via some pleasant surprises. This is where the surprises really begin. This is soulful music. Beautiful in its stripped down, raw, naked recording. The joyous romp through 'Hello Josephine' stops abruptly again with 'Help Me'. You really do wanna help him.
Fun through to 'One Time'. This instrumental builds, layer by layer. Norms playing here is exquisite, weaving in around the timings of the guitar and drums. Wilko and Monti combining with Norm to build a soundscape divine.
Who knew?. A nice romp through to 'Listen To The Lion' and then as the song starts...
Wow. -TWO- guitar tracks. The nagging, insistent, menacing almost, undertone of the second guitar with the bite of the lead and vocals so open, raw and exposed. This is stripped down, plaintive music. Music for the soul. World class.
My copy then goes on to the stompalong of 'Sandpaper Blues' to finish on an upbeat note.
Raw Wilko. Like raw steak, an acquired taste, but the heat of these Red Hot Rocking Blues is truly searing.
