Big Bill Broonzy
The Big Bill Broonzy boxed set features live performances from two outstanding shows recorded in Amsterdam back in 1953. The songs are supplemented with Bill’s story telling.
The long awaited tapes of these performances sat locked in the safe of sound engineer Louis Van Gastoren for over 50 years, although several attempts to get them released were made between the 1950’s and 1980’s.
Broonzy opens with a rousing “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad,” and rocks through excellent song after excellent song, from “Willie Mae” to “John Henry” and “Trouble In Mind.”
Also included in the box set are beautiful, never before seen photographs and extensive liner notes. A fine, historical blues recording.
