“100% Pure” blends the true-life stories with the legends surrounding the outlaw mystique of Bill Wharton, a/k/a The Sauce Boss. The album mixes blues songs with genre-bending selections. Mostly recorded in the one-man band format, “100% Pure” has a very large sound. Plenty of bottom, with a voice begging for mercy, and a slide guitar that crawls out of the swamp like a twelve foot gator.

Zipper Bird: This fanfare documents the flight of the Zipper Bird.
Marquis de Swamp: Totally wild and spooky groove.
Gonna Be All Right: I know it’s very dark right now, but the way out of this mess is to take a positive high road.
Chains: Love is a double-edged sword. We hold down the ones we love.
Delta 9 Blues: A little THC is good not only for glaucoma and pain; it also clears the mind of tribulation.
Peckerwood: Way out in Funk country is Peckerwood. Where the grass is all the colors of the rainbow.
Chicago Combat Zone: When I was three years old, I lived on the south side of Chicago. It was pretty scary. My father was beaten with a black jack, and robbed. That was the end of our stay in Chicago. Last year there were over 2,000 shooting victims.
Cadillac of a Woman: A testament to motherly love
Hey Wilbur: What you tryin’ to do? The answer is, “Groove!”
Sun: Go out and get some sun on your face. It will make you happy.
Song of the Irish Band: Song about songs: how they come to be, and how they give life to people all over the world.
Outlaw Blues: In 1984 (ironic date) I was jailed for cultivating marijuana. Thirty years later, things look like they are “Gonna Be All Right”.
