They Say All Music Guide

Folkways Years (1945-1959) is a wonderful 17-track compilation of Brownie McGhee’s Folkways recordings. During this time, McGhee became a staple on the blues-folk revival circuit, and accordingly these recordings find the Piedmont bluesman playing in a folk style, which he excelled at. Many of the most powerful tracks are straight from the rural Piedmont tradition, but the folkier material shows what a rich musician he was. It’s an excellent sampler, one that demonstrates the depth and breadth of his Folkways recordings. – Thom Owens
