Description

Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee were one of the most popular duos in not just the Blues, but all of American Folk Music.

The acme of their three-tiered career is included in this 94 track 4 CD set - brilliant slices of Piedmont Blues, hard and driving city Blues and immaculately constructed Folk Blues.

There is not a comparable set in the marketplace covering their careers so extensively.

A 28 page booklet accompanies this set with an essay covering their whole journey.
