Album review: Webb Wilder, Hybrid Vigor (1989)

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT, NOV. 24, 1989

By Steve Newton

I’d never heard of Webb Wilder before his Hybrid Vigor album showed up in the office, but lemme tell ya–one spin on the turntable and this scribbler was an immediate fan.

Singer-guitarist Wilder fronts a band that churns out straightforward boogie in the Georgia Satellites mold, with humorous lyrical asides a la the Rainmakers.

There are 10 tunes on this record, and not one of them is a loser. Check out “Human Cannonball” and “Cold Front”, especially, and just try not to dance.
