Big Joe Williams – I Got Wild
Delmark DE 767 (2003)
Country blues at its best from the master of the nine string guitar. This is the first new Big Joe Williams album on Delmark in 30 years. It features recordings made in St. Louis from 1958 which also gave us Piney Woods Blues (Delmark 602) and Stavin’ Chain Blues (Delmark 609), and from recordings made in Chicago from 1961 which also gave us Blues On Highway 49 (Delmark 604) and Nine String Guitar Blues (Delmark 627). Bassist Ransom Knowling accompanies on three songs and their studio banter is priceless! More blues tales from one of the greatest story-tellers of all time.
