Album Notes
Billy Goodman is an American slide guitarist and singer/songwriter now living in Heidelberg, Germany. He worked with Jorma Kaukonen, Jefferson Starship, Dave Mason, and the Goodman Brothers featuring Steve Kimock.

Together with his brother Frank he received a four star review in the German Rolling Stone for the 1995 Goodman Brothers release "Crooked Smile".

He has four CDs on his own label ( and two on the Taxim label (

Also, his version of "Billy the Kid" has been included on the BMG compilation "May Your Song Always Be Sung - the Songs of Bob Dylan Vol.3"

He continues the tradition of folk and blues, and his bottleneck slide guitar and expressive singing are his trademark.

"Blues" is essentially a solo CD of classics written in the late 1920s with Billy on vocals and lots of slide guitar on his old strat and fingerpicking on his old Gibson acoustic.

"...the playing is excellent, whether on electric or acoustic...
Sometimes, someone's name does say it all: Goodman picks and slides through the folk-blues genre in a manner that is a real pleasure...also vocally versatile...melodic slide playing..."(bluesnews No.33/2003)

Billy Goodman sings the Blues like he really means it..
These great old songs are given a new lease of life by Billy's great appreciation of how to sing and play the Blues. A must have CD for any Blues fan.
