READY! is exceptionally well-produced by owner Robert Koester in the naturalistic Delmark style. The backing band is first-rate, especially pianist Ken Saydak and James's brother, harpist Golden "Big" Wheeler, who are both given ample solo space.

James Wheeler: Ready! (1997 'Delmark') (66:54/13) born in '37 this is Wheeler's first solo record. Long-time member of both, Otis Rush 's band and Mississippi Heat, he now steps out on his own. His vocals sound rather shy, but his playing is sensible and fiery at the same time, sometimes reminding me of B.B. King. A fine, rather reserved album.
James Wheeler's first Delmark album, featuring an All Star Delmark band. He was primarily known as a guitar playing sideman but this 1998 album Ready! (Delmark 719) and tours of Europe and South America have established James as leader.
