Big Bill Blues. William Broonzy's Story As Told to Yannick Bruynoghe.
by [Blues Music] Broonzy, William "Big Bill" .

Publisher Information:
Cassell & Company, London: 1955.

A Near Fine copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with light edge wear and a closed edge tear to the spine. There is a small red spot on the front cover that colors one of the letters in Bill's name. This first person account by one of the great blues players is told in Big Bill's inimitable voice as recorded directly by Bruynoghe. Bill talks in his homey manner of his life, his songs, and his many friends in and out of music. In his lifetime he recorded over 250 songs and wrote many more which were recorded by others. Broonzy learned his blues trade in and around the farmlands of Mississippi then took his talents to Chicago in the 20's where he did most of his recording.
