ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This Album is the Followup to KM Williams Critically Acclaimed CD "Reverend of Texas Country Blues", However the early reviews are saying "Raw Powerful Solo Boogie Blues that you just don't hear anymore", "This the way the Blues should be played"," Nobody plays Blues like that Anymore".

This album is by KM Williams; a Texas Country Blues Artist in the category of Lightnin Hopkins,Mance Lipscomb, Blind Willie Johnson & Blind Lemon Jefferson. The disc is Solo Electrifed Country Blues & Boogie.

This artist, who first received an early guitar lesson from Elmore James at the age of seven, has performed at various clubs,coffeehouses & Festivals around North & Central Texas & opened for such International Blues Artists as KIM WILSON, ROBERT JR.

LOCKWOOD, ANDREW "JUNIOR BOY" JONES & LITTLE MILTON.KM wrote all the songs himself; after receiving divine inspiration when the great Bluesman John Lee Hooker passed away earlier in 2001.If you like Country Blues & Boogie like John Lee Hooker; Elmore James Or R.L. Burnside,YOU NEED TO BUY THIS CD! SOUTHWEST BLUES MAGAZINE - Twelve original tracks; Beautifully composed & executed . Williams has this wonderful intensity that permeates his work. There is this omnipotent spiritual texture that engulfs the tunes.It is impossible not to pick up that Country Blues Gospel vibe thoughout the tracks. Williams is steeped in it; it's the fuel that that feeds his fire. Best way I can describe it: it's that electric thrill you get listening to an energized, fire in the belly, Servant of God delivering one of those stand up and shout Hallelujah Salvation sermons. It gets under your skin and stays there. Something about his playing; Something about his voice; Something about the combination of the two. The man has a gift. I think the title track says it all. Check out "Sanctified Boogie" for an excellent introduction to KM Williams' world. There are several tracks that I won't soon forget. Try the haunting "I'm A Soldier" or the mesmerizing "Boogie Child" and I think you can smell what the rock is cooking. Another standout performance on the song"Not By Works , But By Grace"really drives home the point. This is a great listen from beginning to end and Williams shows us some fascinating texture along the path. It will be very interesting to see where the road takes us next. An excellent follow-up from an excellent performer. --- BILL FOUNTAIN, SOUTHWEST BLUES MAGAZINE , January 2002.

CD Baby


Texas country blues & boogie in the styles of John Lee Hooker, Elmore James, Lightnin Hopkins & Hound Dog Taylor. Just a guy and a guitar and nothing going right. Very authentic, right down to the recording itself. If You like old school country blues & boogie, this CD is for you.

Doug Tolbert

Some good boogie blues but could use a good drum beat.
After listening to Sanctified Boogie for the third time, I have decided to put it in heavy rotation in my cd player. Mr. Williams has really got the sound down and its sounds mighty fine sitting out on my porch on the edge of the swamp watching the sun go down. The only thing it really lacks is a good simple, driving drum beat. That would make it a killer blues cd. Don't get me wrong, it is still some damn good stuff, but some drums would top it off.

Kevin Kurrasch

The way the Blues should have always been played...
Sanctified Boogie is a damn fine solo performance by a modern day blues legend. K. M. delivers more of his superb blues expertise on this release. Another soul-gripping performance by an artist destined to go down in history with the best of them. K. M. is the “Blues”. No Glam, no showboating. , Just one enchanting blues tune after another on this C.D.

Not just great boogie...but much more!
Fantastic country blues boogie but with saying that my fave track is the spirtual 'Not by works, but by grace' it has a real Jr. Kimbrough hipnotic thing going on!
