Since 1974, W.C. Spencer has been testing the limits of the blues genre with his high-flying blues act. Now a debut CD introduces this remarkable artist to world with this album of classic urban and country Blues. W.C. has performed in concert with such artists and legends as Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, Roy Buchanan, Danny Gatton, Robert Palmer and Papa John Creach. With Bluescat, Spencer captures the essence of many different blues styles. Called a ?musical genius or freak of nature?, Spencer is a powerful guitarist who also sings and plays the harmonica, bass and drums all at the same time! This album showcases 3 originals and a unique approach to standards by Muddy Waters, Albert King and Sonny Boy Williamson. This album of ?real? blues will definitely be of interest to those who enjoy country, rhythm & classic blues. With descriptions for the album like ?stunning? and ?an absolute gem?, this album is sure to please the most discerning blues listener. Living Blues Magazine says Spencer ?has obviously put a lot of work into his craft - he sounds uncannily like a full electric blues combo.?
A Great One-Man Band!!!

"W.C. Spencer is one of those very rare Blues artists who prefers to go it alone, but have a full complement of instruments to work with. On this his first recording, Spencer plays guitar, harmonica, drums, bass and sings and the results are as good as any fully manned band. This CD contains a good selection of standard Blues songs by the great masters as well as a few by Spencer himself. His musicianship is impeccable, especially the guitar and harmonica.This CD is definitely worth a good listening."
