Yancy Jones, alias Tail Dragger, 1940 - ben született Altheimerben
Arkansasban. Gyerekként az elektromos chicagói blues olyan nagyságai
befolyásolták mint Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Chester
Burnett,és Howlin' Wolf. Jones Howlin' Wolf utánzóvá vált amihez a mély
torokhangja is hozzásegítette. A '60 - as, években Chicágó - ba ment és
a legendás West Side -on és a South Side on kezdett játszani Howlin'
Wolffal aki a "Tail Dragger" nevet adta neki.
Wolf's voice was so gravelly, it was said he gargled nails. The Tail
Dragger sounds like he starts each day with thumbtacks. But he is more
than Wolf lite; the Tail Dragger is his own artist. With several guests
from the contemporary Chicago blues scene--Rockin' Johnny, Billy
Branch, Eddie Shaw, and Jimmy Dawkins among them--his music is solidly
contemporary. His sound was groomed in dark Chicago clubs, and he draws
out his material with plenty of club-inspired jamming. "You Gotta Go"
is sung to a neighbor, made powerful by the intimacy of the line "Your
son is selling dope, your daughter on the corner too." The guitar is
Mississippi delta-inspired, and the saxophone wails like a swinging cat
still in the 1950s. Tail Dragger sings Howling Wolf's "Ooh Baby," and
his voice is uncannily like the original. You ever gargled thumbtacks?
