The review goes into depth about the breadth of the collection, which expands on Bill’s four solo albums with 24 bonus tracks, as well as exclusive videos and interviews.

Says The Second Disc:

White Lightnin’, housed in a flip-top box, kicks off with Wyman’s 1974 solo debut on Rolling Stones Records, Monkey Grip. Featuring such Stones-esque titles as “Crazy Woman,” “What a Blow” and “Pussy,” the LP was produced, written and arranged by Wyman. A “Who’s Who” played on Monkey Grip, including Danny “Kootch” Kortchmar, Dr. John, Leon Russell, Joe Lala, Dallas Taylor and the Bonnaroo Horns. Betty Wright, George McCrae and Gwen McCrae supplied backing vocals. The loose, spirited album was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic, going Top 40 in the United Kingdom and a respectable No. 99 in the United States. All eight bonus tracks included on the previous expanded edition – encompassing four single versions, an early take of “Wine and Wimmen” and three outtakes – have been retained here.

You can buy White Lightnin’ at Amazon and Demon Music.
