Brownie's blues
Bomojaz | South Central PA, USA | 09/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An excellent anthology of the great bluesman Brownie McGhee. The material is quite varied, from the standard 12-bar down-home classic to gospel tunes to 32-bar ballads to even an instrumental. DAISY, from 1957, is a real swinging gem utilizing the 8-bar form. Other highlights include RISING SUN (1955) and a previously unissued recording of JUST A DREAM, first recorded by Big Bill Broonzy in the mid-40's. Traditional blues fans should find plenty to like on this CD."
