Complete Recorded Works, Vol. 2 (1945-1949)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Owens
The second volume in Document's Complete Recorded Works series compiles 19 tracks recorded by Big Joe Williams during the latter half of the '40s and adds a pair of 1935 sides featuring the nine-string bluesman with Chasey Collins. Williams revisited earlier territory during this period, and though his redos of "Baby Please Don't Go" and "Stack of Dollars" don't pack the punch of the originals, they're still highlights here.
