I probably never listened to it in the last almost 40 years and forgot how good it was. And of course that sound of the late s - nothings sounds like that any more Jazzis , Sep 12, Hep Alien likes this.

I think Mississippi's a great song -- a long-time favorite -- but I haven't heard the rest. Jazzis , Sep 13, Was the version of "Me and My Uncle" on '66 the first time John actually released his own version of this song? Overall, Phillips' record is laid-back good times music--I guess you'd call it country-rock because of the pedal steel , but really it doesn't fit too neatly into any genre--it's just well-written, mellow, catchy rock and roll, and after a couple listens you won't really care how it's categorized--you'll just want to keep listening.

John the Wolfking is definitely a vacation and beach album--several of the songs reference the ocean and the beach "Malibu People" and "Down the Beach" as well as referencing broad ranging locales, like Tangiers and Mississippi. Phillips sure knows how to set a mood, and the infectiously mellow groove permeates his best solo record. I think the song that might sum it up best is "Mississippi," a listless just like the river thumper, with some feel-good vibes and some sly lines.

John the Wolfking of L. It's too bad Phillips never achieved much solo success, since he would have produced quite a bit of great music continuing in the same vein. I should also add that the album has several bonus tracks that are only slightly less strong than the original album, which should be listened to as its own discrete unit, separate from the bonus tracks. Hope you enjoy! This is an album I have been trying to buy for several years on cd but the only versions available have been a Japanese cd and an equally hard to find British version on Edsel.

I read in the now defunct ICE magazine that "Wolfking" was being reissued in the states at last by Varese but almost 18 months went by with no further word, nor did it appear on their website. Well, it's here at last and well worth the wait. This was John's best post Mama's and Papa's work. The songs are all top notch and John's performances are great.

The 8 bonus tracks include works in progress,leftover sessions and the single version of the lp's only hit, "Mississippi". My recomendation is to grab it while you can. It could be equally rare as the previous reissues soon. I was a bit disappointed when I listened to the CD three or four times. The melodies are fine, the lyrics are interesting and deeply personal.
