5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! July 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Just about every time I pick up a harmonica, I happen to listen to a recording of Sonny Terry and I figure, what's the point? And Brownie McGee had a voice like great whiskey. Smooth and intoxicating.
Here, these two legendary bluesmen play gospel. And you will never hear a better version of "Just a Closer Walk With Thee" in your life. Get it if you love blues or gospel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, Man!! June 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't know how to tell you how good this album is. It contains four major things above all else; Harmonica, Guitar, Sonny and Brownie. You may hear something else. I can't remember sitting here but I do know about the four. The style is theirs, the tune, the music and the feelings are all theirs. It reaches up the Delta from the Gulf coast to Chicago. Through hot fish and whiskey houses to churches on dirt roads and beyond. I am glad it got to me. It touches the spots that little else touches. It puts the spirit and life together and they do not ask for donations. It is a personal thing about people aware of themselves and the Higher Power. It ain't top 10 or radio, it is just people talking about real stuff. If you don't have it - I'm sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars And this, children, is gospel. December 10, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Arguably the single best rendition of Just a Closer Walk yet performed by earthly humans. In fact, I doubt it is performed any better in heaven.

You don't have a music collection, gospel or otherwise, unless you've got this.

I've owned the vinyl for about 40 years and I'm delighted to find it on CD. Great, great blues gospel.
