Format: Audio CD
Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee were all very well as an acoustic folk blues duo, but lets face it, they hated each other's guts and sometimes their playing got a little formulaic.
Brownie followed the Carolina school of playing which is quite lovely, and it contrasted with Sonny's raspier approach to both vocals and harmonica.
You always got that feeling though that Sonny was holding back.
Well this album is where they threw the gates open and let the Mississippi monster inside him out for a canter.
The sound is plain nasty, and I mean that in a good way. If you like what the North Mississipi Allstars are up to these days then you will love this record. Sonny's vocals are harsher and more satisfying than you will hear on his hundreds of other recordings. His harpin gets lowdown and lonesome too. Up against this is some really sleazy slithery delta guitar from Johny Winter.
Altogether a real eyeopener for fans of Sonny's work. And if you don't know anything about him, this is a good place to start.
Nasty blues, not widdly diddly blues rock boy waistcoat wearin nonsense.
Whatya doing sitting their gawping. Get your card out...

I bought this on vinyl when it first came out and it was wonderful. It still is. Sonny & Willie great blues fathers, and Johnny bringing out the best in them.
A truly great session'

Backporch Jam at it's best! 4 Oct. 2001
By James Pitac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Recorded in three days, Whoopin' is a gritty stomp from the true Mississippi Delta tradition. Absolutely no fillers in this collection. Recorded live with no overdubs, Sonny Terry blows and sings with the fervor of the best, and Johnny Winter's slide work smokes from start to finish. Willie Dixon provides the authentic juke joint slap bass. The only question you'll have after hearing this is why the promotions dept. wasn't sacked for not getting the word out on this release. Get it.

A very nice latter-day album 14 Jan. 2004
By Docendo Discimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Saunders Terrell was 72 when this album was recorded, but he sounds as healthy as always, and his joyous whoops still pepper his singing.
Johnny Winter plays excellent, gritty blues behind Sonny Terry, Willie Dixon slaps the upright bass, and drummer Styve Homnick lays down a tough, shuffling backbeat on these ten songs which include one instrumental, and excellent renditions of "I Got My Eyes On You", "Ya Ya", and the infectious, up-tempo boogie "Hooray, Hooray, This Woman Is Killing Me", as well as yet another take on the classic "Worry No More / It Hurts Me Too"-tune, this one titled "Burnt Child", and a swinging, folkish "Crow Jane".
It's a bit of shame that Sonny Terry's harmonica isn't amplified, but otherwise, this is a really strong session, the arrangements are excellent, and Sonny's voice is a powerful as ever.
4 1/2 stars - highly recommended.

An underappreciated classic. 25 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Johnny Winter applied his deft touch to this outstanding recording with Sonny Terry and Willie Dixon. As with the four brilliant Blues Sky recordings he produced for Muddy Waters this set is a killer. Winter's playing is always at it's best when he is in the presence of a Blues Master. He is more restrained and supportive, less invested in overwhelming the music as he is in supporting the artist. Sonny is in top form. It's hard to imagine he was near the end of the road at the time of this effort. His was a remarkably vital and inspired performance. This is a modern-era classic of the blues, at a time that the blues was gasping it's last authentic breath. Essential...Simon

He did it till the end .. 30 Sept. 2005
By David Booker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Man this is a rockin little record :A nice scenario where we see the acoustic classic harp, and spot -on vocals of Sonny with an electric country blues rhythm section behind him . Nothing I know of recorded by Sonny was ever done this way and i'm so glad we have this most enjoyable blend of blues left behind by Sonny for us to dig forever. The late Willie Dixon, Steve Homnyk, and Producer / Guitar legend Johnny Winter are the band here ,and the whole thing is a pure joy to listen to. Uncluttered rockin acoustic/electric country blues; A true classic .One of the best Alligator Records releases ever .

Sonny Terry - Whoopin' (w/ Johnny Winter and Willie Dixon) 9 Dec. 2012
By R. Kesler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
HA! So where do ya' begin with this kicker? Sonny Terry gets top booking, but Johnny Winter is no slouch, nor is Willie Dixon, or that other Styve guy [Homnick]. Sonny Terry has to be one of the most under appreciated artists of our time, and for those in the know, one of the most dear, and most loved ... working his magic with acoustic blues in the true Piedmont style; originating in the southeastern States. Yes, Sonny was a blind harp player who's enjoyed a rather lengthy career, both as a solo artist and as a session man constantly in demand. Whoopin' was Sonny's final studio album, and is damn near flawless, representing the culmination of a lifetime of musical brilliance.

Alligator Records released this bit of sunshine, and while Alligator has sometimes been criticized for sanitizing their releases, that criticism sure doesn't apply here, where these four legends let loose, playing from the hip, and slap a happy smile across your face that will have you lookin' silly for days. Willie Dixon dances that upright bass like he's making love to his favorite woman, and Styve Homnick, a totally forgotten drummer, holds a steady backbeat, shuffling with a swagger, and uptempo straight-back variation. Winter's playing is gritty, but never looses the grace required of Piedmont Blues, while Sonny's harp, which isn't amplified, cuts like a foil, standing in stark juxtaposition to the instrumentation, bringing out the big ol' yellow moon, just when it's needed most.

This sensational bit of traditional blues was laid down in just three days, a reflection of the spark that turned into a fire when these fine musicians matched up. Whoopin' is an absolute necessity if you even consider yourself into the blues, and will prove to you why Eric Clapton will always be Eric Clapton, but Sonny Terry will forever be THE BLUES.
