Review by Jason Ankeny:
Volume five in Document’s Blind Boy Fuller series is comprised primarily of two prolific sessions, the first recorded in Columbia, South Carolina on October 29, 1938 with harpist Sonny Terry and washboard player Bull City Red, the second a Memphis date from July 12, 1939 with Terry, Bull City Red (now going as Oh Red) and second guitarist Sonny Jones.
The latter is perhaps the most impressive, yielding the signature song I Want Some of Your Pie as well as You’ve Got Something There (a rewrite of Buddy Moss’ “Daddy Don’t Care”) and Fuller’s immortal rendition of J.B. Long’s Step It Up and Go.
