More than 50 years since they last recorded together, Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder reunite for a tribute to blues heroes Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee.
Ry Cooder’s contributions to Americana are apparent in all of his albums. That’s particularly true of Into the Purple Valley, now celebrating its 50th anniversary.
