Brownie McGhee Born with the Blues - 1966-1992 DVD
Tennessee-born, Carolina-influenced, New York-based (in his ‚Äúfolk boom‚Äù glory) and a Californian at the time of his death, Brownie showed a wide stylistic range from turn-of-the-century ragtime (Come on, Keep It Coming) to the lyrical sophistication of such original songs as Conversation With a River. His flair for the dramatic aside and autobiographical insight augment passionate vocals and splendid guitar work in 14 performances provide a moving retrospective of an artist too-long taken for granted. Sonny Terry accompanies Brownie on six songs. You can also download a PDF which contains biographical information, photographs and performance notes on the tunes here.
