Review by Jason Ankeny.

Beginning with the mid-December, 1937 session which kicks off this fourth volume in Document's retrospective, Blind Boy Fuller entered into a recording partnership with the legendary harpist Sonny Terry that continued for the remainder of Fuller's studio career. Terry's blistering harmonica and falsetto interjections lent an exciting new dynamic to Fuller's sound, as classic sides like Pistol Snapper Blues, Mean and No Good Woman and Georgia Ham Mama amply prove, each musician pushing the other to new creative heights.
