  • One reel to reel recording. Poor recording. Williams discusses moving to Florida, playing with Muddy Waters and Slim Hopper, performing for white audiences, and performs with his electric guitar and harmonica. These are field recordings from the Florida Record Project. That project, along with work for the North Florida Project, resulted in the two-album recording, Drop On Down in Florida.
