"Wizz Jones is regularly cited as an early influence by the likes of Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton and Keith Richards, amongst many others. He was also a crucial mentor to 1960s folk-blues royalty like Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Ralph McTell. More recently, he's frequently name-checked as an icon by younger artists, including Thurston Moore & Stephen Malkmus. Originally released as a very limited pressing on a German label in 2001, Lucky The Man is still Wizz's most recent studio album. This digitally re-mastered reissue is enhanced by the addition of 5 bonus tracks, all selected by Wizz himself. The final bonus cut, 'Sugar For Sugar' is a previously unreleased duet with Wizz's hero, Ramblin' Jack Elliott. Lucky The Man features a stunning array of supporting and duetting musicians, including ex-Pentangle members John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee, Balham Alligator Gary Ricard and Wizz's old busking partner from the '50s and early '60s, Clive Palmer. Also featured are guitarists Martin Wheatley & Bernd Rest, and Wizz's son Simeon on sax. Plus of course, Ramblin' Jack Elliott. Still traversing the musical landscape he helped to pioneer -- folk, blues, cowboy songs, jazz and traditional English tunes -- this is the sound of Wizz Jones in superb voice and guitar playing form."
