Willie Williams - Raw Unpolluted Soul


Drummer Willie Williams’ “Raw Unpolluted Soul” is really a blues album instead of a soul album. But they certainly got the raw and unpolluted part right.
Williams’ voice is as thick and dirty as his drumming. The members of his crew — folks such as Carey Bell, Hubert Sumlin, Eddie Taylor and Pinetop Perkins — certainly know how to get dirty, too. All 10 songs are good; “Wine Headed Woman” and “Detroit Blues” are great. ( Cahl's Juke Joint Blog)

...this is nice, not gonna change the world or rewrite history as we know it, but damn if it don't deliver a real down home laid back slow Chicago blues jam feel with some gruff drunken throw away vocals, some excellent playing and some good tunes and even some live party thing craziness goin on too...definitely my cup of mojo

Back in the dark ages I was sent for review a 45 taken from the LP

Wine Head Woman/Detroit Blues Supreme SR1001

I've always been a sucker for independent, low budget, cut & paste LP's. There is something about the sound that the regular labels loose along the way during the production.

@Alan, I also remember buying the 45 and was surprised that it also came with a b/w promo photo. Still got it and it turns up on the juke box now and then.
