A Long Way from Home

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
Music from Brownie and Sonny's latter period, circa March and September of 1969. This combines two albums A Long Way from Home and I Couldn't Believe My Eyes, both cut in two days recorded for ABC-BluesWay, with the inclusion of a stray unreleased track, "Beggin' You," from the second session in September. The personnel stays basically the same for both sessions with excellent rhythm section support from drummer Panama Francis and bassist Jimmy Bond, while the September session also includes Earl Hooker on guitar. Solid, relaxed, rockin' grooves are the hallmarks here with both artists in fine form.
