Homesick James – WORDS OF WISDOM – Icehouse 50691


Born in Somerville, TN, and cousin of Elmore James, James (Homesick James) Williams had a real good start in the blues and went on to tour with cousin Elmore on and off from `54 to `58 playing guitar on several recordings of the best songs like, “The Sky is Crying”, “Dust my Blues” and “Roll and Tumble”.

This disc is full of down-home acoustic slide guitar with just the right accompaniment; bass, drums and sparce harp. All of which, producer/ engineer/ guitarist Fred James, seems to tie together like an after-hours impromptu blues set. Very satisfying indeed.
