This is just a tiny, tiny, tiny little list of artists and albums which included the wonderful artistry of guitarist Wah Wah Watson, real name Melvin Ragin, who just died much too young at age 67. Whenever his name popped up on the credits of an album during the 70s and 80s (and much later too, of course), I always knew that the album was worth checking out.
