Review

Review Text The remarkable Country Negro Jam Session assembles home recordings of southwest Lousiana-based blues singers collected during the late 1950s and 1960s by musicologist Dr. Harry Oster. Fourteen cuts by country fiddler Butch Cage make up the guts of the album, but the real highlights are the grim performances by Robert Pete Williams, who was serving a murder sentence at the notorious Angola State Prison at the time his tracks were recorded; equally powerful is a rendition of "Foxhunt" performed by a group of therapy patients. Despite its somewhat misleading title, a truly landmark recording. ~ Jason Ankeny
