What's Hong Kong blues? This is Hong Kong blues, and it's good. As a Hong Kong citizen, I'm proud of William Tang and his album because they both shine for Hong Kong and its people. William Tang is a world-class harmonica player, and can be compared to Carey Bell and James Cotton. At first, I found out about Tang when he played harmonica in the background songs for Hong Kong favourites like Jacky Cheung and George Lam. I'm glad he released this solo album and this is much better than the stuff that he did for the stars. The most amazing things he did was "Let the Smoke Clear" and "That's It" with the Australian guitar master Tommy Emmanuel. These tracks are played completely spontaneously and they sound cool! "Amazing Grace" reminds me that although Tang is not black, he's got the soulful blues feeling. He also sings in two other songs. Even though those are not the highlights in this album, he tries hard and he ain't no bad singer. Be sure to check out the Chinese blues duet with Clayton Cheung, its purely amazing!
