    What a voice! The gravel and scratch register both passion and struggle. Unforgettable.

    What a voice. As soon as I heard my first BWJ track he rapidly became my favorite delta blues musician.

    Amazing... and so authentic comin' from a guy who lost his mummy young... What a life this poor guy lived, and what music he brought us... some of the most soulful blues to have hit the planet aswell as some slide technique to die for...
