This video career retrospective begins with two pieces filmed for the Library of Congress in 1948, including a rendition of, John Henry, with Woody Guthrie. Pete Seeger appears as appreciative host to the duo for two songs from his, Rainbow Quest. A wonderful medley filmed in 1970 of, Red River Blues/Crow, Jane offers two of the oldest known pieces in the Piedmont blues repertoire. Sonny's signature harmonica showpiece, Whoopin' the Clues, is heard in a 1973 BBC performance, and a tour de force, Rock Island Line, closes this exciting survey of a duo who, more than anyone else, introduced a generation to the power and glory of country blues.
