Mississippi's Big Joe Williams and His Nine-String Guitar

Mississippi's Big Joe Williams and His Nine-String Guitar

This vital reissue captures the dynamic range of Williams’s work with clarity and presence—from the quietest, almost whisper-like guitar to his loudest shouts, and everything in between. 13 tracks, originally recorded in a Chicago studio during 1961. Accompanied on several tracks by bassist Ransom Knowling. Includes Bluebird Blues, Somebody’s Been Fooling, and Elevate Me Baby. "You can hear the renewed vigor and vinegar in his voice." — Dirty Linen
