Big Daddy Wilson's album, Neckbone Stew, has won The German Record Critics' Award in the category of Blues for this quarter. Their mission is to provide producers, composers, artists and music lovers with an honest guide to new releases of true artistic significance. The German Record Critics' Award ("Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik") was established in 1980 to set the "most rigorous standards for supreme achievement and quality" in the field of music recording.
The jury: "Done right, neckbone stew is a culinary delicacy for the eyes, nose and palate, though of course, it all depends on the right combination of ingredients. Likewise, with his album "Neckbone Stew," Big Daddy Wilson has cooked up a delight for the ears. That's because he chose the perfect ingredients for his acoustic gumbo and spiced it up so artfully that one is hooked from the very first spoonful. Blues, gospel, roots, soul, funk and reggae combine to form an irresistible sound conglomeration that makes the listener immediately want seconds. This is the musical equivalent of a gourmet dinner at a five-star restaurant." (For the jury: Karl Leitner)
