Bill’s track of the week: Just For A Thrill

Bill has personally chosen the song Just For A Thrill as this week’s track, and taken from the Rhythm King’s album of the same name…

Originally released in 2004, Just For A Thrill saw¬†Bill Wyman and his all star band The Rhythm Kings return with their fifth album intent on securing a hat-trick of UK Jazz and Blues chart album number ones. Just For A Thrill has Wyman’s usual hit formula – real music, great players, wonderful guests, great songs, some old, some new – and an ever-growing audience just waiting to hear what the former Rolling Stones bassist has come up with now.

Bill has personally selected Just For A Thrill as his track of the week, featuring Georgie Fame on vocals:

Just For A Thrill is available as part of the four album collection The Kings Of Rhythm Vol 3: Tell You A Secret available on Bill’s online store.

Bill and the boys (and girl) don’t disappoint with the new album, released on May 10, 2004 in the UK on R&M records. Lead vocalists Georgie Fame, Beverley Skeete, Albert Lee and Mike Sanchez tackle blues and jazz standards, old classics from Wyman’s encyclopaedic collection and even a Beatles cover together with brand new songs with equal aplomb.

And with a band that features Fame and Sanchez on keyboards, Albert Lee and Terry Taylor on guitars, Graham Broad on drums, and the horn section of Frank Mead and Nick Payn plus Bill Wyman on bass, the tracks are equally sizzling. And did we forget to mention-a certain Mark Knopfler, yes, of Dire Straits fame, adds his guitar virtuosity as well.
