''Sonny & Brownie's Last Train'' was a Grammy Nominated Finalist for the 60th Annual Awards. This special set earned a Grammy nomination for ''Best Traditional Blues Album''.
''Sonny & Brownie's Last Train-A Look Back at Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry'' is a loving tribute by The Ambassador of the blues, Guy Davis and international harmonica star, Fabrizio Poggi. Recorded in Milan Italy, Guy and Fabrizio explore the the music of one the great blues duos in history. Besides many engaging covers like ''Evil Hearted Me'' and ''Hooray, Hooray These Women is Killing Me'' Guy also penned an original composition for this release, the title track is a special tribute to Sonny & Brownie, two legends of traditional Blues.
''his voice is low-down, curated in smoke and is as penetrating as ever'' --Downbeat
''If the earthy power of Guy Davis's sandpaper vocals doesn't grab your attention and the resonance of his acoustic-guitar strings doesn't turn your head, you need to make sure you're still alive'' --Robert Gordon
''he's America's greatest link to the blues right now'' --Windsor Star

This was because when I first heard the blues the blues fanatic I hung out with defined authentic blues in a rather narrow way. To be a real blues singer you had to have made a few recordings back in the 1930's, preferably had a name that was prefixed with Blind, had a short, tragic or mysterious life and most definitely had to be dead. This point of view led to the performers playing the 60s Blues revival being denounced as commercial and listening to them was seen as heresy. As I was more interested in Jefferson Airplane at the time I accepted this as valid criticism and concealed my fondness for Canned Heat.
Now conscious of my ignorance, I did some research and once I found some great footage of two of my all time favourite songs, "Baby Please Don't Go" and "Goin Down Slow" -neither of which were by Sonnie and Brownie - that were on this cd I decided to buy it. I am so glad I did.
It came this morning and I have had it on repeat ever since. This is a lovely cd with clear, crisp sound from live in the studio performances that are brilliantly sung and played. There isn't a bad track on it.They even manage to inject life and freshness into and get me liking tracks like "Freight Train" and "Take This Hammer" which were badly served by some awful covers back in the day. I now suspect that even if I listen to the originals I will probably prefer Guy and Fabrizio's beautifully produced versions of all these songs. The digipack contains a sheet with added information on and all the words to the songs which is a thoughtful extra.
This cd has been nominated for a Grammy which I think it definitely deserves. So if, like me, you missed out on the music of the Blues revival, this cd is a hugely enjoyable way of catching up. If you didn't, this is excellently done, with the from the floor recordings catching all the spirit of a live set with a sound quality that you rarely get from one. This is the best blues cd I have bought this year and I recommend it highly.
Quick delivery, item as described. Very good seller.
Infatti, come ho scritto nel titolo, ho acquistato questo CD per un amico che non è cliente registrato.
Spero, per lui, che gli sia stato gradito :D
Essenziale perchè semplice, senza fronzoli, pochi ingredienti ma di qualità e ben equilibrati tra loro: voce, chitarra, armonica e tanta, tanta anima, che come in tutte le cose fa la differenza, ma nel blues ancora di più conferendogli un significato ben più alto e nobile di semplice genere musicale.
Ma soprattutto essenziale nel senso di indispensabile per conoscere e vivere le origini del blues. La sensazione che si prova fin dal primo pezzo, infatti, è quella di salire a bordo di un treno in grado di trasportarci direttamente in quell'epoca, in quei luoghi e di farci vedere e conoscere di persona i protagonisti delle storie narrate.
The last train is leaving the town, don't miss it!
