Midnight Special

I have been a huge fan of Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee ever since I was first introduced to the blues when I was 19 - and that was 39 years ago!! I first heard them on a compilation record called "Dealing with the Devil", and then saw them live in London - an amazing pair, as Sonny Terry was blind, and Brownie McGhee has a severe limp, and the limping man led his blind friend onto the stage - a very moving sight.

The remastering is excellent, and altogether a great album.
