• Smilin’ Bobby always played in small clubs or in corner taverns way out in the suburbs. He is for many blues lovers the favorite unknown bluesman in Chicago. His guitar style is a cross between Magic Slim’s stinging leads and Magic Sam’s cool little rhythm fills while his great singing doesn’t really sound like anyone else.
• Nobody knows why Smilin’ Bobby has no CD out until now (at the age of 69!) – but it doesn’t matter. On his Wolf CD you can finally get to hear a great hidden blues talent.
