CD Reviews

Sonny is, without a doubt, king.
Kavity Killer | denver, colorado United States | 01/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is country blues, pure and simple. Beautifully and masterfully performed by Sonny (harp) and, if I'm not mistaken, Lightnin' Hopkins (guitar) on most tracks. Sonny has a totally unique harp style and his singing really shines on this (I prefer his singing to Brownie's). It just doesn't get much more elemental and primally American than on tracks like "One Monkey Don't Stop My Show" "Ida Mae" or "'Tater Pie" Lightnin' and Sonny tearin' it up, probably all first takes too. A lost classic masterpiece."
