The late Big Bill Broonzy looms as one of the few country blues greats whose career seems as remarkable as his musicianship. He played every professional role available to the untutored black guitarist of his generation: that of the country blues soloist catering to dance audiences, the city bluesman beguiling record buyers with full-dress lyric themes and a slow song delivery, and the folk entertainer trading on familiar standards ear-marked for white listening audiences. When he became one of the first bluesmen to appear in formal by playing Carnegie Hall in 1939, he was (unlike most black musicians who had ever received inter-racial recognition for their work) already a popular musical attraction within his own race. Twenty years later, just before country blues began to interest white listeners as an art form, Broonzy was dead at the age of 60. It is his early career as a country bluesman that this LP, like its companion volume ‘The Young Bill Broonzy’, commemorates.
