...traditional musicians, too, often try to "get it down just like" an admired player picks a particular tune. This is not slavish imitation for its own sake but rather a passionate desire to get at the very sinews of the style, based on the realization that the impact of traditional music depends on detail and an evocative context... - Art Rosenbaum, Old-Time Mountain Banjo

Brownie McGhee
« on: March 04, 2005, 08:16:32 AM »
Good Morning,
I'm looking for a Brownie McGhee disc, I have a lot of Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry and now I'm looking for something solo that includes "Me and My Dog Blues". I don't have any of Sony's re-issues so I'm wondering if  "The Complete Brownie McGhee" is a good choice or if someone could point me in the right direction for a different CD?
Got the name, still workin' on the licks!

Me and My Dog Blues is on the Sony set.  Expect the usual from Sony:  good liner notes, clean but unspectacular sound.  There's also a JSP box available that contains the complete (or almost complete - I haven't actually checked) works of both Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee through 1948.  Twice the music for just about twice the price.  Expect the usual from JSP.  I haven't heard this so I can't compare the sound of the two sets.
