“Long John Dean” is one of my favorite rootsy songs.* Willie Watson, with his sparse and sparky banjo frailing just brings great life to “LJD.” For one man and one banjo, Willie Watson is indeed a folksinger, and an interesting voice as well. I hope he keeps his album mixes simplified and not overly produced. Cool banjo riffing.
From Willie Watson’s Folksinger, vol. #1 cd.
