Big Joe Williams – Blues On Highway 49
Delmark DD 604 (1993)
with Ransom Knowling
Joe knows those southern highway routes by heart–he can give you accurate routing information throughout the Delta country. The people and places mentioned in his music are real. He’s been there–he’s ment them. And when he sings about them, he is letting us have some of the benefit of his wanderings. No color slides or movies are needed either.
Recorded July 13th & 20th, 1961
