I think this is a great buy if you are a fan filling out a collection or even if you are simply checking out the blues for the first time. I could not tell you yet if these are "the definitive" BBB songs but for the price I am not sure that it matters.
While a few of the songs are a bit "grainy" so-to-speak I am surprised at the overall quality and easily worth 3 times what I paid. Not trying to take anything away from Mr. Johnson but I am a bit surprised that Big Bill Broonzy is not mentioned more prominently by these artists. After listening to his music I feel he might be more relevant and more talented than Robert Johnson.
Enough opining: I highly recommend this disc and not solely for the price but truly because an artist like Big Bill Broonzy needs to be remembered for his talent and his contribution to music. Please give this man serious consideration. One person found this helpful. Big Bill Broonzy Bonanza! I have no idea who put this together but the sound quality of most of the songs are very good considering some are from the 's.
Big Bill Broonzy deserves so much more credit for being an innovator than he gets credit for historically. Some of the tunes are from his Jazz days featuring barrel house piano accompaniment with his singing and guitar while others are him, a guitar and a string bass. Big Bill is great. Old School Blues.

The Album) CD begins with "Big Bill's Blues", ten recordings made in February in Philips studios in Holland, which the original sleeve note represents as a private party rather than a recording session, presumably to deflect the charge of commercialism.
The second CD starts off with "Folk Blues", Ballads (Vinyl numbers recorded in Chicago in December with Big Crawford on bass, and the original sleeve note is at pains to establish Big Bill's credentials as an Arkansas farmer who played and sang as a kind of sideline, rather than in reality a Chicago-based musician and singer.
That's followed by "The Blues", twelve numbers recorded in Chicago a month earlier, mainly with bass accompaniment, but for the last four numbers which feature a quartet accompaniment. In addition, a further eight tracks from early are included, two at the end of the first CD, the remainder at the end of the second CD.
Big Bill is immediately identifiable, first for his finger-picking guitar style, and secondly for his high-pitched delivery. He began recording inand in the early fifties he became an important figure within the emergent folk music revival. These are late Album) he died in August which should be of interest to all blues enthusiasts. My brother will really love this, as I really bought it for him to borrow and enjoy. See all reviews.

A great collection of recordings superbly remastered by the excellent budget lable AVID, they specialise in re-issuing classic recordings usually from the Jazz and Big band spectrum. However, they seem, to be branching out now in what they term as 'Roots' recordings. Big Bill Broonzy was a far more sophisticated bluesman than he was portrayed, He spent the 's and early forties as part of the exodus of southern born Blues singers that descended on the windy city i.
Chicago and played electric guitar. He worked the theatres and taverns and toured with Memphis Minnie. It was however the earnest folk archivists and John Hammond with his production of 'Spirituals to Swing' held at Carnegie Hall in place of the late Robert Johnson and the European trad jazzers that re- marketed him as nothing but a simple Arakansas farm boy!
Well it worked and he sold out many a crowd and pleased them with 'retro' performances. It was in and after his final Mercury sessions that Broonzy fianlly reverted to his country blues style and recorded prolifically for a variety of European labels.
