Product Description:

Although it appears somewhat thrown together, this set is made up of live performances from Leadbelly (disc 1) and the Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee folk blues duo (disc 2) that convey the special connection each of these acts was able to make with audiences, particularly Leadbelly, who turns in impassioned performances of "Goodnight Irene," "Gallis Pole" and "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?," all three of which require different emotional nuances in order to work. Leadbelly shows what a natural and riveting performer he could be here, and to a lesser extent, so do Sonny & Terry, and one would have to say that all three of these musicians were at their best in small group settings like this.
