Edwards presented a mixture of originals and covers of songs by the likes of Tommy Johnson, Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf, Charley Patton, and Memphis Minnie on this solo country blues session, originally issued by Folkways in 1979. There's nothing extraordinary about this album, true, but it's solid Delta blues that feels lived in. Edwards does much to add interest and variety to the material by varying between chording and single-string playing and high and low notes, and changing the rhythms unpredictably, sometimes with a stop-start feel. His husky voice is warm and communicative, if not as distinctive as some of the legends he hung out with, which included Patton, Robert Johnson, and others.

A true legend! actualy played with Robert johnson the night he was poisoned. Everything he has recorded is a MUST HAVE for the die hard blues fan.
Great Acoustic blues
Saw Honeyboy on a DOC channel documentary and had to buy some. If you like simple, acoustic blues, then this is a great place to start. Plan to buy more shortly.
