Wah Wah Watson
Melvin "Wah Wah Watson" Ragin may be one of the most talented musicians you have never heard of. As a session musician for the famed Motown Records - he had the honor of serving as a member of the Motown studio band throughout the 1970s. Wah-Wah played guitar in numerous recording sessions for a venerable who's who of artistic leaders including, Marvin Gaye, Herbie Hancock, Michael Jackson, The Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Bobbi Humphrey and more.

A Detroit native, Wah Wah Watson earned his nickname from his dominating control and precision on the Wah Wah pedal. His talents made him a highly sought after commodity
throughout the funk and soul heyday of the seventies.

In 1976 Wah Wah decided to take a crack at a solo career, and turned his attention toward the release of his first ever studio album, "Elementary". Enlisting the help of his friends, who just so happen to be equally great and notable studio musicians, Wah Wah crafted a timeless collection of jazzy-funk grooves that was eventually found a home on Columbia Records. Unfortunately, Wah Wah's solo's career was cut short as the album received critical acclaim but was a disappointing commercial failure. Columbia did not repress "Elementary" and it remained out of print for decades.

Now, thanks to the fine folks at Get On Down "Elementary" returns in an enhanced, digitally remastered format. Housed in a gatefold digipak, "Elementary" will be available for the first
time anywhere on compact disc and first time anywhere in generations.
