Bill Williams was a great guitarist with a really slippery style. As far as I know, none of his recordings are currently available in CD format, and his two Blue Goose albums, "Low and Lonesome" "The Late Bill Williams-Blues, Rags, and Ballads", have long been out of print. Should you be able to find the records on e-Bay or in a used record store, they are both excellent, but I prefer "Low and Lonesome".
