5.0 out of 5 stars A prolific blues performer..., 25 May 2011

This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
Big Bill Broonzy (1898-1958) was a prolific blues singer, songwriter and guitarist. His career began in the 1920s when he played country blues to mostly black audiences. Through the 1930s and 1940s he successfully changed in style to a more urban blues sound popular with white audiences who appreciated this authentic sound. In the 1950s a return to his traditional folk-blues roots made him one of the leading figures of the emerging American folk music revival and an international star. His long and varied career marks him as one of the key figures in the development of blues music in the 20th century. Broonzy copyrighted more than 300 songs during his lifetime. This new compilation brings together his most successful recordings and has a total running time of approx 152 minutes. The liner notes are by Not Now regular Michael Heatley. Attractively packaged with photographs and with excellent sound transfers this will be a great addition to your blues collection at a very realistic price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good remastered record, 27 Mar 2013

This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
The sound is very good. Sadly the tracks are too much singing and not of his brilliant guitar playing - which is what I wanted. At least it was nice and cheap.
