This second volume of newly released (on CD) Robert Pete Williams
material was mostly recorded in Louisiana in 1959, shortly after Williams
was paroled from Angola by Governor Earl Long. The cuts recorded during this time reflect both his appreciation for being out of jail and his understanding that he was still not completely free. The searing "All Night Long," "I Got The Blues So Bad" and "This Train Is Heaven Bound" are punctuated by equally gripping guitar accompaniment on either 6- or 12-string. There's also material recorded later in his career in Berkeley. The three cuts from 1970 show Williams
in a more reflective mode, though no less powerful. These are two of nine previously unissued cuts comprising the majority of the disc.
