Title: The Resurrection of Blind Willie
Catalogue Number: No catalogue number
Review Format: CD
Release Year: 2006
You can't get more straightforward than this 14 track release from K.M Williams. One man and his Stella guitar singing like many delta bluesmen have done in the past. Recorded live, warts and all, this album contains neat, affecting versions of many spiritual standards.
K.M. Williams does not have a spectacular voice but there is no doubting the honesty of the performances. Of particular note is "Lamp Trimmed and Burning" featuring vocal assistance from Diana Williams, "God's Got It" and the closing track "Live So God Can Use Me with just his voice and a harmonica.
Even though this was recorded in 2006, this is a throwback to simpler times and the perfect antidote to the processed music that is normally fed to us these days. Perhaps not as special as the Country Roads, Street Corners & Church Houses album but a worthy effort nonetheless.
