Tim Woods

The Blues Sessions

The Blues Sessions by Pennsylvania bluesman Tim Woods is 12 tracks of serious guitar blues tradition. With a strong “blues bar band” sound, Woods expertly utilizes thumb picking into his playing to execute leads and rhythm simultaneously. All of the songs on this album are well established and authentic blues tunes written by the masters themselves. Blind Willie Dixon, Big Jack Johnson, David Honeyboy Edwards each have at least 2 tracks on this disk. Songs by Roosevelt Sykes and Chester Burnett round out what is essentially a respectable album of blues classics. Best Tracks: #5 SPOONFUL, #4 BAD WHISKEY & COCAINE FCC Naughty List: NONE Other points of interest: David “Honeyboy” Edwards, Ike Stubblefield, Terry “Big T” Williams and Aaron Moore make guest appearances Who would like this cd: fans of Delta blues, blues guitar aficionados, Billy’s Lounge patrons
