Tail Dragger - American People download album

James Yancey Jones, known professionally as Tail Dragger Jones (born September 30, 1940) is an American Chicago blues singer. He has performed since the 1960s and released four albums to date. Jones gained a certain notoriety in 1993, after being convicted of second-degree murder for the killing of another blues musician, Boston Blackie. Jones, a disciple of Howlin' Wolf, was given his nickname by his hero because of his habit of regularly arriving late at Howlin' Wolf performances.

TAIL DRAGGER: American People. With his unpolished vocal style he sounds like a re-incarnation of the Howlin' Wolf. His blues are rough, his lyrics mean and honest even dealing with social topics.
