Throughout the prolific career of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, the most beloved performing association in blues history, many fans felt that Terry too often took a backseat to his partner. On this Prestige/Bluesville album, Terry got a chance to really strut his delightful whooping and hollering stuff. It’s still a Terry and McGhee date, but it’s Sticks McGhee on guitar in place of his older brother. J.C. Burris, Terry’s nephew, also played on the session and their lively twin harmonica romps are among its highlights.

with J. C. Burris, Sticks McGhee, Belton Evans
