What a great cd

"I bought this because I am a big fan of Washboard Sam, and I found out that he had a half brother, Big Bill Broonzy. Well Washboard Sam and Broonzy's music is almsot the same sounding, both are good time blues singers, who really have a hard driving style, however Broonzy plays guitar and Sam plays washboard, other then that they have similar voices, that rock gently and roll with rhythm! This cd is exellent and Big Bill sounds like he's ready to party. If you like this you should also check out any of Washboard Sam's recordings, he also recorded with small blues swing combos like the one Broonzy plays with here. Also they made a number of recordings together that can be found on the out of print cd of Washboard Sam called Rockin' My Blues away!"
PERFECT cd of the great Big Bill Broonzy

"Big Bill Broonzy is a legendary bluesman, who not only is a great blues shouter and guitarist, but a pioneering artist who was singing r&b long before the term had ever been coined. Broonzy's brand of hard swingin' blues, not only swing, but at times rocked with hsi hard driving guitar and wailin' vocals, often backed by a horn or two, with heated swing combos. Broonzy and his rockin' blues combos are featured on this cd very well, and his 30's recordings are highlighted here, and this cd should be acquired by all serious blues fans as well as r&b fans, and all those who want some good time party blues."
A great "good time" party CD!!!

"This is a real fun cd full of VERY EARLY r&b/jump blues, which at the time didn't have a "style name" other then good time music. These are blues, with Big Bill's strong and appealing voice, and his shuffle guitar style, backed with usually washboard, and a few horns and a tight rhythm section. These recording from the mid to late 30's arre essential early pioneering blues, that would later influence r&b and rock'n'roll. Essential music, to play wheneber good times are in mind..."
