You're looking for a Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee album and aren't sure which one to buy?

Well let's agree that ALL Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee albums are essential but is this one particularly essential and should you be buying it?

Of course you should. Two CDs with 20 tracks each of classic Sonny & Brownie for a ridiculously cheap price. Two CDs that will enhance your life, put a smile on your face and a spring in your step and ensure that you stop at least for a while yet again to consider what fantastically talented troubadours these two were.

Were there ever musicians that wrote greater songs or better tunes? That played and sang better or were more lyrically adept or more downright joyous than these two?

If you are looking for a Greatest Hits this isn't it. If you are looking for a primer then this probably isn't it either. What it is is a marvelous collection of their early recordings first released in 1958 on CD1 and CD2 is even earlier and retraces their steps from 1941-1948. The recording is OK and there is even some nice sleeve notes to read through.

Thanks Primo for another bargain and hopefully the next generation of Sonny & Brownie fans will be as enthused by the sound of it as we were in the 1960s.

This takes me back to the 60s when I first heard the blues.All the old favourites plus many I had never heard or had forgotten.Well worth the money and not just for the blues die-hard either.That harp blows me away.

This is a real good blues recording. Sonny and Terry was unknown for med until I heard this one by a coincidence. If you'r a bluesfellow, buy this!
