I'M WANTED, originally titled MORE GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS, was the blues phenom's third and final album for Rounder (i.e. before MTV and stardom). By and large, it's very much of a piece with its predecessors. Thorogood's brash, rowdy take on the blues owes as much to '60s garage bands and punk as it does to Muddy Waters.
Here, however, Thorogood begins to make the connection a little more explicit. Along with the well-chosen covers of reasonably obscure blues tunes - gems from Willie Dixon ("I'm Wanted"), Ella Mae Morse ("House of Blue Lights"), and Slim Harpo ("Tip on In," with the beat turned around)-he roars through the Strangeloves' '"Night Time" at a near Ramones-ish tempo. Now, that's something a genuine blues purist wouldn't have considered for a moment.
