Willie Buck Way is the name of an honorary street named after Willie Buck in his hometown, Chicago AND it’s the name of his new album on Delmark Records. Accompanied by Billy Flynn, Thaddeus Krolicki, guitars; Scott Dirks, Harmonica Hinds, harmonica; Johnny Iguana, piano; Bob Stroger, bass and Jimmi Mayes, drums Buck delivers twelve new original songs along and five covers.
Buck’s previous Delmark album, Cell Phone Man, debuted on Living Blues Radio Chart in the #1 position in the December, 2012 issue along with an 8-page feature story and a glowing album review.
“His vocals are sinewy and expressive (he demonstrates a powerful upper range that even a lot of his longtime fans will find surprising)…postwar Chicago blues have long been, and remain, a contemporary music to him, and he delivers them with both urgency and élan.”
Willie Buck Way also features notes and original artwork by Plastic Crimewave (Steve Krakow) from the Secret History of Chicago Music series.


Willie Buck: Willie Buck has been leading his own bands for over 40 years. He's been on the scene since his arrival in Chicago as a teenager in the midst of the heyday of Chicago blues in 1953. He put out his only album in the early 80s which became a collector's item over the years and was re-issued in 2010 as The Life I Love (Delmark 805). At that time it was decided Willie would create a new album for Delmark but it wasn't until Rockin' Johnny stepped forward that the project got off the ground. Cell Phone Man features 16 songs with a heavy dose of Muddy Waters Chicago Blues. Rockin' Johnny Band is Rockin' Johnny, Rick Kreher, guitar; Barrelhouse Chuck, piano; John Sefner, bass; Steve Bass, drums and special guest Bharath Rajakumar, harmonica.
