In 16 original songs that range from gospel-blues to rockabilly, from Delta swing to haunting guitar instrumentals, William Lee Ellis works the roots of American music and twists them to his own designs.

With "The Full Catastrophe" - a record declared one of the year's best in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop poll - William Lee Ellis works the roots of American music and twists them to his own designs. In 16 original songs that range from gospel-blues to rockabilly, from Delta swing to haunting guitar instrumentals, his second solo recording brings together the pieces of the American music puzzle that has been his life.

Self-released in 2000 to accolades in the international press from Billboard to The London Times, "The Full Catastrophe" is now being released nationally with all-new bonus tracks, including the novelty ragtime number "Sushi Lady Blues", a popular live staple.

Guest appearances by Memphis music legends Paul Burlison and Jim Dickinson, as well as by Tony Ellis - Bill's father and a former member of Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys - highlight this exploration of the heart of American music traditions, produced by Ellis's musical partner and multi-instrumentalist Larry Nager.
