Love it

I am biased towards the Document early blues albums, and this is a very good one to get for fellow enthusiasts. Classic artist, honing his craft to make for some damn fine listening. Bits and pieces being put together reminding us again that its all folk music are why Document's series is a precious gem.

Document's Complete Recorded Works, Vol. 1 (1935-1

EMUSIC-00AAF011

I'm a more than a little prejudiced...... Big Joe was a friend, a mentor, and a ramblin' buddy of mine (I was a mentor of his too....

All that bein' said, this is very good, if not,"the best", compilation of "9 String" Big Joe Williams' material, that I've heard. (And, inasmuch, as I am one of the world's foremost authorities on American Roots Music. in general, and the evolution of the blues specifically, my opinion carries a lot of weight! This is as good a compendium of Big Joe as you are likely to find! Get it? Get it!!) Michael L. Castle

Document’s Complete Recorded Works, Vol. 1 (1935-1941) is an invaluable collection of Big Joe Williams’ late-’30s and early-’40s recordings. Most of the best performances of Williams’ career are here (“Baby Please Don’t Go,” “Somebody’s Been Borrowing That Stuff,” “Crawlin’ King Snake,” “Little Leg Woman,” “Stack of Dollars,” “Highway 49″), with support from figures including Sonny Boy Williamson and Henry Townsend. – Thom Owens
