Reviews:
"A career-defining statement, an important legacy, and a lifetime achievement." (Blues Matters)

"There is a lot of blues in his playing along with folk, country and other elements, so 30 years ago , he was playing American before it had been given the name." (Country Music People)

"He's quite simply one of the most unassuming, natural performers on the circuit, and his easy, relaxed manner conceals the greatest level of true expertise, whether using jaw-droppingly effortless fingerstyle or soulful slide to accompany his extensive repertoire of songs (many, although self-penned, are wholly idiomatic, authentic creations)." (FATEA)

"Work My Claim offers transatlantic Americana blues delivered with fingerpicking panache." (RnR)

"Williams demonstrates command of his material and the kind of ensemble leadership that only comes with a few thousand gigs notched into one's guitar strap." (Songlines)
