Sonny Terry (1911-1986) and Brownie McGhee (1915-1996) were the longest lasting and most beloved team in the history of the blues. This long-overdue previously unreleased companion to their classic Live at Sugar Hill album (OBCCD-536-2) finds the two bluesmen at the peak of their powers, performing in perfect tandem at the legendary San Francisco club. They bounce ideas off one another--Terry answering McGhee's smooth vocals with shivering harmonica wails and backwoods shouts, McGhee providing incisive guitar rhythms and leads for Terry's rougher singing style--sometimes trading phrases or blending their voices in chilling harmony.
Recorded December 29, 1961.
