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.

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 never been a big blues fan, but I developed a special interest in Sonny and Brownie because of their long friendships with Woody Guthrie, Cisco Houston, Pete Seeger, Lee Hays and other folkies active in NYC in the '40's and '50's. Brownie and Sonny were raised in the hills of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina. Each had a handicap, and when they were brought together as singers with harmonica and guitar, they clicked, at least on stage. This album was recorded in Oakland, California in 1957, and the men are in good form. The 38 minutes of religious songs here are as done in the rural black churches of the Depression years. Some of them, like "Some of These Days" and "I Shall Not Be Moved" were also staples of the white Southern churches (and were recorded by the Carter Family in the late 1920's.) I only knew five of these dozen hymns before hearing this record. If you have an interest in this kind of music, this CD is going to please you. Both men sing, solo and together, and Sonny's famous harmonica is a highlight of every track. Brownie's guitar licks were not half-bad, either. This may be their only recording for Fantasy Records, a Berkeley, California outfit, but it is good 'un.

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.
