The Folkways Years, 1945-1959

The Folkways Years, 1945-1959

An 18-song compilation culled from the six LP's McGhee recorded for Folkways, illustrates this stellar blues guitarist's remarkable musicianship and repertoire of older blues ballads and original compositions. One selection is made available here for the first time. "...[A]n exceptionally fine example of Brownie McGhee's work...most of the songs... are given such excellent arrangements and delivered with such charm as to be irresistible." — Shanachie Review
