Description by OLDIES.com:

This compilation offers a good cross-section of the many talented Blues artists who created the Country Blues sound on Old Town Records. There are ten tracks from Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, two of the genre's most important pioneers and one of its longest-lasting partnerships.


Product Description:

Old Town isn't a label most folks think of when classic blues recordings come to mind. But for a brief period in the 1950s, this R&B-oriented label released some pretty potent discs, and the best are collected here. Featuring wild performances by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee (who cover ten of the 25 tracks aboard), the set also includes super-rare sides from Willie Dixon, James Wayne, Little Willie, and Bob Gaddy. New York blues isn't all that well documented, so this set is a most welcome addition to blues history. ~ Cub Koda

Miscategorized? Music Lover: from GULFPORT, FL US -- December, 3, 2015

If you're expecting the classic southern singer and his guitar performing solo a la Waters, House, Johnson, etc., this is not the disc to buy. I wouldn't call this country blues. I would call it a decent addition to a blues lovers collection, though.

If you enjoy the "Blues" add this CD to your collection. You will begin tapping your feet and will forget everything that was bothering you.
