Description
Recorded live in the mid-1990s, one of the greatest unsung heroes of the Piedmont blues jauntily croons and fingerpicks a program of fiddle tunes, ballads, country and popular songs, honky-tonk, ragtime, jazz, and gospel. Tunes include "I Got a Woman," "Bring It On Down to My House," "I Feel So Good," "Honeysuckle Rose," "I'm Confessing That I Love You," and "Worried Life Blues."

"A small, unvarnished trove of American music…. Williams is a songster at heart, still in thrall to the rich, cross-quilted music he heard on the radio in his youth. Which is why 'Blues Highway' isn't all that blue; it's dotted with little rest stops where Williams puts aside tunes associated with Blind Boy Fuller (a guitar and harp boogie version of 'Step It Up and Go'), Big Bill Broonzy (a soulful solo version of 'Key to the Highway') and other blues artists long enough to indulge a taste for vintage pop ballads, jazz favorites and country novelties. Nothing proves more engagingly corny than 'Hey, Bartender, There's a Big Bug in My Beer,' which features a delightful cameo by guitarist Eddie Pennington…. With Summerour's rhythms and responsive riffs, the duo evokes the blueprint guitar-and-harp sound of Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry."—Washington Post

The folk music archives that form the wellspring of these Smithsonian recordings are truly incomparable. Encompassing a wide variety of styles, they reflect the heart, soul, and backbone of the American experience as well as indigenous music from around the world. Folkways' impeccable sound and documentation does these artists proud, setting their work off as the treasure it is.
