The single is from the upcoming album (Blind Boy Billy), which is the companion to the book, The Life and Times of Blind Boy Billy.
In addition to solo one-man band tracks on the album, the Sauce Boss has taken his one-man band and added violin, sousaphone, snare drum and backing singers to tell the ragtime story of an irascible traveling fiddler, Blind Boy Billy.
CD and Vinyl Album to be Released January 11, 2019
It’s no Moby Dick, or Ulysses, but it is unlike any book I have ever seen. From the press release:
The Life and Times of Blind Blind Boy Billy is a memoir. It’s also a songbook (with soundtrack) and a cookbook. Bill Wharton filets the story of his life, smokes it, and sandwiches it between photographs, tunes and recipes. It’s the backstory of a life of sharing food and music. It’s also a story of the outlaw grower of fine cannabis, and his brush with the law. The tunes and the recipes follow the story, with the Sauce Boss mixing media like it was cornbread.”
