ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With a dozen albums to his credit, Brooks needs no introduction to fans of great acoustic music. Williams' influences are wide and varied: Motown to Gospel to World, and his music covers a staggering amount of ground. On SKIFFLE-BOP Williams reinvents songs by Miriam Makeba, Sam Phillips, Pat Metheny, and offers some of his strongest originals.

"If Williams' guitar picking gets any sharper, we'll have to invent new adjectives," wrote the Boston Globe. Well, they better start inventing because Williams' music, lyrics, singing, and picking get sharper with every recording. Critics and writers hail Brooks as "an acoustic guitar god'" and a "fret monster," saying his music is "electrifying," "dazzling," and "breathtaking," and that he sings like the "Angel of Soul." With millions of touring miles and thirteen albums to his credit, the fans have seen and heard it for themselves. His huge and growing catalog of original songs is "exquisite," says MOJO, a UK magazine. Whether live in concert, where rich new music continues to emerge, or in recordings (he's recorded over thirteen albums) where his fiery flatpicking, power chords, single note leads, and simmering slide can be consumed over and over, fans understand why Dirty Linen says, "A consummate artist, Williams ranks among America's musical treasures."

zipadee doo dah!
This recording is pure joy! Chasing the Groove ALWAYS make me smile. Weary of the Moon is the sweetest song of longing and love ever written. When the angels were passing out music gifts, Brooks went back for seconds! He is an amazing guitarist and song interpreter. His writing is straight from the heart. Be careful if you slip this on when you are driving, you may just drive beyond your destination!
