The Wham of That Memphis Man is a 1963 album by Lonnie Mack. This album, Mack's first, was recorded in several sessions beginning in March, 1963 and was released by the small Cincinnati label Fraternity Records in October of that year. It reached only on the charts, but music critic Jimmy Guterman ranked it No. 16 in his book The 100 Best Rock 'n' Roll Records of All Time.

Few albums have received the level of critical acclaim Lonnie Mack’s The Wham Of That Memphis Man! has enjoyed down the years. Despite never entering the US Top 100 it has been re-discovered and re-issued many times during its 52-year lifespan, kept alive by devoted admirers who loved the music and were driven to proselytise on its behalf. The album was issued in October 1963 and reached on the charts. It came as a revelation to those who heard it, there having been nothing quite like it before. Lonnie’s road-seasoned crew – saxmen Irving Rusotto and Marvin Leiberman, pianist Fred Stemmerding, bassist Wayne Bullock and drummer Ron Grayson – provided a rock solid, bluesy canvas on which he could display his formidable instrumental skills.

This is a reissue of Mack's first album for Fraternity in 1964, the one thousands of guitarists cut their teeth on. Muddy Waters once sang, "The blues had a baby and they named the baby rock & roll. This is the album that proves it. Instrumental versions of R&B hits ("Memphis," "Susie Q," "The Bounce") rebound against heartfelt soul numbers ("Farther Down the Road," "Why?") right next to dazzling fretboard blues romps both slow and fast ("Wham!," "Down and Out"). Mack sings his rear end off, the band.
