Well we called us the Mississippi Sheiks, all of us Chatmons, cause my name is Bo Chatman only they call me Bo Carter. We toured with the band right through the country; through the Delta, through Louisiana down to New Orleans, serenadin' - Bo Carter

You can listen to clips here:

I assume this is out-of-print.  It even may be unavailable for purchase.  (I wouldn't assume the link to Amazon sellers at the above site is accurate.  It looks like it might be the same CD, but it is not clear.)

Has anyone heard the Testament recordings from the late 60's produced by the always reliable Pete Welding?

http://www.wirz.de/music/edwardsh.htm

Of all the Honeyboy collections on CD, this one is my favorite. He was in strong voice on these recordings, and his guitar playing is full of confidence. And, yes, Pete Welding's Testament releases are some of the best blues recordings made during the 60's, in my humble opinion.

I do believe this *is* the album you're talking about: http://www.amazon.com/Crawling-Kingsnake-David-Honeyboy-Edwards/dp/B000003OJF/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1311163638&sr=1-1

The page referenced has no track listing, and the CD is listed as manufactured by "Hightone Records" (not Testament).  I'd check with the seller before buying.  Sometimes CDs from Amazon sellers are not properly identified.

Hightone has the whole Testament catalog (as much as has been re-issued) at this point.
All best,
