Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry - Climbin' Up

Nice collection of 1952-1955 sides with an urban blues twist by McGhee, with Terry's contributions limited to harmonica only and guitarists Stick McGhee and Mickey Baker checking in over the course of the dozen entries. McGhee was a world-class electric bluesman, too -- a fact that frequently gets lost in the folk-slanted duo material he cut with longtime partner Terry. - by Bill Dahl, AMG
