Big Bill Broonzy An Evening With Big Bill Broonzy on 180g Import LP
Chicago blues pioneer Big Bill Broonzy spent much of the 1950s (up until his death in 1958) touring and recording in Europe, where he was revered as a living legend of the blues able to make a decent living from his music, after decades of financial hardship. Recorded live at Copenhagen's Club Montmartre on May 4, 1956, this rare LP is one of the few remaining live recordings of Broonzy from this period.
While the track selection of standard blues numbers is typical of his European performances, Broonzy was always a crowd pleaser and tried to play the songs each individual audience wanted to hear, never letting his ego get in the way and, thereby, winning the hearts of fans everywhere! Featuring liner notes by one of the founding fathers of British blues, Alexis Korner.
