CD Reviews

Brownie & Sonny
Bomojaz | South Central PA, USA | 11/05/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD collects two early Bluesville LPs (their first and fourth), recorded in 1960 (a major year for recordings for both Brownie and Sonny). The feeling on both LPs is very relaxed and laidback; most of the tunes are standard 12-bar blues (A-B-C and A-A-B formats) with a couple of 8-bar blues and one 16-bar ballad thrown in. Verses are out of the standard blues repertory.

Brownie does most of the singing, though Terry joins on occasion for duets, and Sonny gets a few spots all to himself as well. Brownie's voice is clearly enunciated and mellow, and his accoustic guitar makes for perfect accompaniment. Terry, of course, blows harp and that axe is featured on folky items like FOX HUNT. There is a consistency to the high quality of the performances here that makes choosing highlights impossible: lets just say the whole CD is great. Definitely worth checking out."
