Big Bill Broonzy was born William Lee Conley Broonzy in the tiny town of Scott, Mississippi, just across the river from Arkansas. During his childhood, Broonzy's family -- itinerant sharecroppers and the descendants of ex-slaves -- moved to Pine Bluff to work the fields there. Broonzy learned to play a cigar box fiddle from his uncle, and as a teenager, he played violin in local churches, ... Read more in Amazon's Big Bill Broonzy Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Guitar Work 3 Nov 2000
By BT - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although originally recorded in the 1930's .Big Bill Broonzy's music lives on through his influences on todays heros.This CD is a must for any serious acoustic blues musician & is the supplement to Woody Mann's Guitar Learning Video , Big Bill Broonzy .The Liner notes by the folks @ Yazoo Music are equally important & insightful .

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album 9 Jun 2010
By Heath Edan Combs - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is truly an amazing collection. I've got a couple other Big Bill albums and I had the revelation the other day that Eagle Riding Papa is just about the same thing as the Bob Wills Light Crust Doughboys theme. There's excellent flat picking here, Mississippi River Blues is great. You aren't wasting your money here.
5.0 out of 5 stars Important Early Work by a Major Bluesman 5 Mar 2013

Bill Broonzy was a powerful performer of the Delta Blues, and he later found a second career as a folk and blues singer for the liberal folk crowd in Chicago. I remember seeing him at a party when I was a teenager, and I've loved his music ever since. This CD and a second of his material from the twenties and thirties are important documents of Broonzy's work before he became a northern urban performer. Yazoo is a label specializing in rare folk, ethic and blues recordings from the period before the Second World War. Their remastering and notes are always more than excellent.

A great find. I grew up listening to the radio stations that played Blues at night, and I really miss the old time Blues.
