ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Reverend K.M. Williams, is an ordained minister. And a boogie man.
The Reverend is one of the last links between north Mississippi blues and the Texas style.
People have been saying the blues is the devil's music so long, a lot of people believe it," he explains. "That's just something that built up over time, but that doesn't make it true."
Williams, who has released more than a dozen albums since starting to record himself in 2000, notes that "gospel music and blues music — and I do both — are virtually identical, apples from the same tree.""Blues is about feelings, but so is gospel when you get right down to it. We all listened to the blues growing up, and that doesn't make us bad people. Singing and playing the blues doesn't make you a bad person."Williams's clinging to the spirit and the sound of old-school rural blues is part of what makes him such a fascinating and unique musician in the blues milieu. Not only does he incorporate the Diddley Bow, that instrument, which is essentially a rural one little known outside farms and plantations for many years, he is one of the few remaining legitimate links between the north Mississippi blues tradition and the rural Texas style of masters like Lightnin' Hopkins, Lead Belly and Mance Lipscomb.- By William Michael Smith, Houston Press

Blind Lemon Dufflecoat

Another great cd from the Reverend
This is how all blues albums should be - recorded live with no overdubs, just great music!! Starts with a new take on the old classic 44 Blues. The album is hypnotic and a great album to chill out to.
