Down & Out Blues
Released: Jan 1959
Kicking things off with the hilarious classic "Don't Start Me Talkin'," Williamson's 1959 debut is essential music for any self-respecting blues fan. His vocals are bothered and desperate, his harmonica playing insane, and the band behind him is drenched in so much echo it's almost psychedelic. It's enough to make you forget about Zakk Wylde altogether.
