The Texas Country Blues Preacher;K. M. Williams;known for reproducing the songs and sounds of early 20th Century Texas/Mississippi Delta Country Blues,Boogies and Spirituals of Lightning Hopkins,John Lee Hooker & Blind Willie Johnson,has,this time around,reaches both back in the past,playing some tracks in the old Texas acoustic blues styles(even one track with a Diddley Bow)but takes some steps into the future by adding some modern drum mixes;The Hard Rocking Electric Missisippi Blues sounds of RL Burnside,T-Model Ford and Jesse Mae Hemphill;The Distorted Slide Chicago Blues of Hound Dog Taylor and the Hard Rock Guitars Sounds of Jimi Hendrix to created a different kind of Country Blues.

Richard Flaherty

My 4 year old is dancing to it!
My little Ronan is swaying back and forth to it! Little kids can feel it when it's right...right?

Washboard

Yup, that's It Brother!
You got it Man! This stuff is as good as you've ever been...this cd IS your best. You're bringin' Blues full circle here and keepin it at home too. And I ain't just sayin that 'cause you my partner either. This is better than even Texas Country Blues Preacher.

Still your favorite "beat man",

Honest blues straight from the soul
Reminiscent of the late, great R L Burnside, K M Williams is a preacher from Texas who, well, sings from the heart. Decidedly lo-fi with prominent hiss, hum and distortion on many tracks, this album is just one man with his guitar and an occasional drum machine. Unlike R L Burnside however, he sings with an almost palpable feeling of sorrow. There is a real hypnotic effect to the tracks that belies their simple production. It is an album of honest performances with particular highlights in “I Need the Lord” and “Street Corner Blues”.

Si

A bona fide blues classic
Everything about this album is perfect - from the tracks to the track order! - I can't stop playing it!!

Mick Rainsford "Blues in Britian"

Tough and Uncomprising Downhome,Roughshod Blues
The set opens with"Take a Swing with Me",Williams doom-laden vocals are droned over a compelling hynotic guitar riff;"Want You to Love Me" with poignantly moaned vocals and Tantalizing guitar riff based on "Good Morning Little School Girl"."Good Rocking Daddy" a stomping,North Mississippi Hill Country blues where Williams barely discernible falsetto vocals enhance the memerizing quality of the keening slide and fretwork."Holding on to My Lord's Hand" is a downhome slab of Blind Willie Johnson/Blind Willie McTell inspired Gospel. If You love the Blues to be tough,uncomprising and unadultered then this set is for you-it's the"real deal" pure and simple-and comes unreservedly recommended(See the "Blues in Britain mag for complete review).

This guy needs to be known
I've never heard raw blues with gospel like this guy plays. You can shake like crazy, and then come down to earth, and hold the hand of the Lord.
