About Tim Wilson
Tim Wilson's newest CD, Super Bad Sounds of the '70s, is a baaaad mutha...SHUT YOUR MOUTH! If you think Tim Wilson is just another hillbilly comedian, then think again. If you liked the Soul Train, you'll agree that the Shoals Plane is DY-NO-MITE! Wilson shows his 'blues roots' on his new collection of R&B flavored comedy songs, a very unique departure for the southern-fried comedian, best known for creating albums with titles including Hillbilly Homeboy and I Should've Married My Father-in-Law.
Loosely modeled after an episode of Don Cornelius' Soul Train, Super Bad Sounds of the '70s takes you through an episode of The Shoals Plane, a fictitious musical variety show set in the early '70's, complete with wacky commercials, song dedications, and "guest artists." Wilson pays homage to his R&B heroes with his original music, and still manages to deliver his comic commentary on subjects including trailer trash, DUI, blind dates, cell phones, and yes, there's even a NASCAR song that takes a dig at driver Ward Burton's speech impediment.
Super Bad Sounds of the '70s finds Wilson coming full-circle, returning to the music that prompted him to become an entertainer while he was a student back home in Atlanta, Georgia. His first ambition was to become a serious recording artist, and Wilson even recorded a round of demo recordings with Roy Yeager of the famed Atlanta Rhythm Section. If not for a fateful appearance at an open mic night at a comedy club, he may very well have never realized his gift as a comedian.
"I grew up listening to the brilliant records made by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, Thom Bell, Barry White, Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield and so many great artists of a period between 1967 to about 1976," Says Wilson. "While listening to this record, I implore you to remember that I am only trying to be funny in a lyrical sense. I take this music as seriously as I do the National Anthem and at no time have I approached this project disrespectfully in terms of the music or the culture from which that great music came."
Wilson's storied career, sparked by his natural ability to make people laugh, led him from Georgia to New York City, and back again to Georgia. He has appeared on Evening at the Improv, Grace Under Fire, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He's a regular favorite on the syndicated national radio programs The Bob and Tom Show, John Boy and Billy, Rick and Bubba, and Steve and D.C. His tour schedule is a non-stop zig-zag across the country, performing at comedy clubs and concert halls all over the United States.
Super Bad Sounds of the '70s is Wilson's sixth release for Capitol Records and his first CD of all original music and comedy in three years.
Dig it, baby.
