WEBB WILDER (1991 / 2005)

Highslide JS "DOO DAD" USA CD
(Zoo/Praxis 72445-11010-2)

"Doo Dad" was Webb Wilder's third album, and it was his cover of "Big Time" that really put his name on the map, as it got a lot of radio airplay. His band consisted of Donny Roberts (guitars, vocals), Rich Ruth (bass, vocals) and Les James (drums, vocals). The album was produced by R.S. Field.

Webb Wilder is a big Ian Hunter/Mott The Hoople fan, and his 1995 covers album "Town And Country" included a great version of Mott The Hoople's "The Original Mixed-Up Kid". More info
