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.
