Fat Possum 80349Robert Pete Williams
"(Robert Pete is the) definition of the country bluesman - a poet of his own experience, his language and idiom coming from the hard country background that shaped him." Samuel B. Charters, The Legacy of the Blues.
By now the story of Robert Pete Williams is quite familiar to blues fans throughout the world. Born in Zachary, Louisiana in 1914, he has lived in and around this Baton Rouge area all his life and now lives in Maringouin. He was convicted of murder in 1956 and was sent to Angola State Prison. In 1959 Robert Pete was paroled primarily through the efforts of a Denham Springs farmer who has been deeply impressed by his first Folk-Lyric album "Angola Prisoners' Blues"....
