An unusual musical figure, singer and guitarist Robert Pete Williams recorded for the first time in prison when he was more than 40 years old. He was discovered by ethnomusicologists Dr. Harry Oster and Richard Allen in Louisiana State Penitentiary, where he was serving a life sentence for fatally shooting a man in a nightclub in 1956, an act which he claimed was in self- defense. Oster and Allen recorded Williams performing several of his songs about prison life, and pleaded for him to be pardoned. Free Again contains some of his best performances.
