Big Bill Broonzy Sings Folk Songs

Big Bill Broonzy Sings Folk Songs

I was introduced to Big Bill Broonzy by way of Vinyl Me Please, who included Big Bill Broonzy Sings Folk Songs as one of their featured monthly releases.

I love the blues, but prior to getting this album I did not pay much attention to Big Bill. He was one of those names that I was familiar with, but I couldn't quite identify any of his songs. After this album, I devoured everything of his that I could find (and I definitely recommend the Big Bill Broonzy Story as a next stop).

This album contains a selection of folk songs that are soulfully sung in a country blues style - nothing from the "standard rotation" is present. The album culminates in my favorite song on the album - "Glory of Love" - for a stellar ending to an enjoyable ride.

Check it out if you like the blues. It got me hooked.
