Big Bill Broonzy, Sonny Terry And Brownie McGhee Blues With Big Bill Broonzy, Sonny Terry And Brownie McGhee on 180g Import LP
In A WFMT Chicago Presentation: Studs Terkel Interviewer
Recorded on May 7, 1957 from midnight to 2 o’clock in the morning on the WFMT radio station in Chicago, host Studs Terkel brings three living legends of the Blues (Big Bill Broonzy, Sonny Terry, and Brownie McGhee) into his studio to talk about the meaning of the Blues and, of course, play some great music.
Here each man talks at length on the album about their own personal definition of the Blues, tracing its roots invariably back to its origins in the African American spiritual, and playing some songs that exemplify this along the way.
This album is a rare artifact, giving listeners the opportunity to hear these musical giants both talk about and perform their craft. 180g vinyl pressing with printed inner sleeve and extensive liner notes.
