Often ranked with such blues greats as Robert Johnson, Son House, and Elmore James, Big Bill Broonzy was for many years the last surviving practitioner of the "Delta" style of blues. This record, cut for Smithsonian Folkways in 1956, captures Broonzy late in his career but still during the peak of his power. While this is not considered "the" Broonzy album to own, it is, nonetheless, a very good one, and has the obvious advantage of being kept continuously in print by Smithsonian Folkways. 1 Backwater Blues (I Got up One Mornin' Blues) Big Bill Broonzy 2:48. 2 This Train (Bound for Glory) Big Bill Broonzy 2:57. 3 I Don't Want No Woman (To Try to Be My Boss) Big Bill Broonzy 3:5. 4 Martha Blues Big Bill Broonzy 4:57. 5 Tell Me Who Big Bill Broonzy 3:38

Big Bill Broonzy (June 26, 1893 – August 15, 1958) was a prolific American blues singer, songwriter and guitarist. His career began in the 1920s when he played country blues to mostly African-American audiences. Through the 1930s and 1940s he successfully navigated a transition in style to a more urban blues sound popular with working class African-American audiences.

The Blues' originated as a style of local folk music from around the Mississippi Delta as the 20 th Century began. Its influence was spread across the Southern States by travelling shows and 'wandering songsters' like Lead Belly and Blind Lemon Jefferson, who sang Blues songs along with folk ballads, spirituals and Ragtime ditties, and both used Blues forms in their own compositions in their later recording careers. As African-Americans moved from rural poverty to the cities in the 'Great Migration' after WWI, Big Bill Broonzy was a central figure on the 30s Chicago scene. He helped to develop the idea of a Blues Band, with guitar, piano and harp, and incorporated jazz-influenced complexity into the urban sound. Blind lemon jefferson - king of the country blues. Blind Lemon Jefferson was one of the first Bluesmen to record his own material, rather than re-telling popular songs. From famous songs like 'Match Box Blues' and 'See My Grave is Kept Clean' to novelties and religious tunes, this album gives fine examples of Lemon's slide guitar and boogie styles.
