Williams performed with Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lonnie Johnson, Memphis Slim, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf and Son House as well as numerous others throughout his career. Most notably Williams performed several duets with Bob Dylan in 1962. Williams is the author of the famous song "Baby Please Don't Go" which was covered by The Doors, Aerosmith and Dylan in later years. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1992.
