His sound is uniquely his--the gorgeous, warm tone, the driving rhythm, the amazing control, the guttural voice, and of course the trademark falsetto "whoop. Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee may well have appeared before more audiences, in more countries, than any other blues musicians. Sonny has made countless records, mostly with Brownie but also with other bluesmen like Leadbelly, Lightnin' Hopkins and Big Joe Williams, with folk singers like Woody Guthrie, even with a full-tilt rock band.
He's one of the most-recorded bluesmen ever, but he's never done an album quite like this one. Here's how Johnny Winter tells it-- "Back when the blues was being called folk music, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee were some of the first people recorded, and they were one of the first country blues harp and guitar duets I heard. I loved them, but I always felt like Sonny was never quite in his element. Brownie's a great guitar player but he has that mellow, pretty Carolina style and Sonny's voice was always more raspy--it had a Ya!

So when Sonny asked me if I'd produce an album with him, I tried to make a record with a lot of Delta feel to it, like we Ya! Ya! - Budd Johnson - "Ya! Ya!" (Vinyl cut the record in Mississippi. That's why I played a lot of slide on it.

Essentially the same information was contained in the CD booklets, which also folded out into a not-as-large sheet.
The two vinyl discs were housed in Time-Life anti-static poly- lined inner sleeves. Early issues in the series had many flaws, like wrong versions, mono instead of stereo, and many disc transfers. To their credit, Time-Life aggressively upgraded the sound when they found better sources, and eventually corrected many of the wrong versions, especially on CD. This resulted in re-mastered CD versions of the same volumes, usually indistinguishable from the earlier CD pressings unless one studied the matrix numbers remasters were indicated by "RE-1," "RE-2," etc.
Where we are aware of differences, we have tried to indicate these in the descriptions below. Since the entire series was available on CD, we have primarily listed the track lineups and the stereo content of the CD versions in the discography below, unless we know of significant differences in the LP and CD versions.
