This is a fond look back to the music of the Piedmont blues icons, harmonica ace Sonny Terry and acoustic guitarist Brownie McGhee. Elmore Magazine
You’ll be doing yourself a disservice by not immediately purchaing this first-rate record
This is an excellent and historically significant collection of standard blues and traditional music.
Sonny & Brownie’s Last Train is as close as anyone living in the 21st Century will get to enjoying Terry and McGhee in concert. If you love the old masters like I do – or simply are just curious about the way they truly sounded in concert – pick this one up today. It’s Sonny and Brownie live – and taken to another level.

Beautiful dark vocals by Davis, who also dilivers impressive guitar work on both six and twelve stings, while the harmonica playing of Poggi equals the virtuosity of Terry. Rien Wisse (Jazzism, The Netherlands)
