Sonny Terry - Sonny Is King - 1962.
Although their styles were regions apart and they'd never performed together previously, Georgia harmonica ace Sonny Terry and Texas guitar titan Lightnin' Hopkins fit like foot in sock when producer Kenneth S. Goldstein paired them at Rudy Van Gelder's studio on October 26, 1960. As LeRoi Jones observed in the original album notes, "There is a meeting of ways, where the light and the sad seem to come together simply as blues." Selections six through 10 were recorded the following year, and Terry was back in the more familiar company of another great guitarist, his longtime partner Brownie McGhee.
