Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry were one of the greatest and most influential country blues acts to ever grace a stage, and this collection of rare performance footage captures the duo at their best. Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry: Red River Blues (1948-1974) begins with Library of Congress archival film of McGhee and Terry playing traditional blues numbers (Woody Guthrie sits in for one song), and closes with a set the pair recorded for British television in 1973, with a handful of other rare appearances in between. Selections include "John Henry," "Red River Blues," "Whoopin' the Blues," "Crow Jane," "Burnt Child (Afraid of Fire)," and many more. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
