“Mercy!”, the second release by the multi-talented Scottyboy Daniel Blues Band, is a heartfelt tribute to one of the greatest harmonica players of all time, the late William Clarke. Once the concept of a tribute CD was established, Scottyboy set out to recruit John “Marx” Markowski, Clarke’s guitar player, to play on the record and assist with direction. As a student of Clarke’s life, style, and catalogue, Scottyboy and John choose some of the most notable and influential songs written and performed by Clarke, as the basis of this project. Together, with the blessing of Clarke’s widow Jeannette, the band has forged a moving and powerful collection of Clarke’s music, in the finest tradition of the Harp-Master himself. This project was completed with the utmost respect, love, and devotion that any one musician can have for another… especially a mentor.
