It has an atrocious title and an atrocious album cover, but Wet Willie's eponymous debut is a good slice of Southern rock. The band occasionally stretches out a bit, getting into bluesy improvised sections, but their main talent is for laidback Southern grooves. The album is a little uneven, but "Shame, Shame, Shame," "Dirty Leg" and "Have a Good Time" illustrate their potential.
