Customer Reviews

Wicked good!

Kim has never sounded better, with this foray into "old soul." And, with friends like Anson Funderburgh, how could you go wrong!
A terrific outing!

The Fabulous Thunderbirds

Kim Wilson is a musician who simply never stops bringing new touches to his prolific music release.
“Strong Like That”. The Fabulous Thunderbirds really mix it up on this release with far too many guest musicians to mention here to add to the musical mix. On first listening, clearly evident was the Motown sound that brought back many memories from the 60’s and early 70’s. True enough, the Thunderbirds’ rendition of ‘Don’t Burn Me’ with its strong background vocals had me visualizing the Temptations choreography as they sang the chorus, while their renditions of Eddie Floyd’s classic ‘Never Found Me a Girl’ and the Motown song icon ‘(I know I’m) Losing You brings new grooves and soul to two already iconic songs.
Kim Wilson’s strong harp playing is prevalent throughout and supported by as solid a group of musicians as you might find anywhere, “Strong Like That”, while breaking no new musical ground, is never the less a totally joyful CD release. Play this at any party and you can be sure to see some dancing going on.

Kim and the boys really nail it this time. No boring shuffles here. The Tbirds tackle some very challenging material and make it their own.

During their heyday in the early '80s, they were the most popular attraction on the blues bar circuit, which eventually led to a breakthrough to the pop audience in 1986 with their fifth album, Tuff Enuff. The mass success didn't last too long, and founding member Jimmie...
