Various Artists: Great Bluesmen In Britain (CD)

Various Artists: Great Bluesmen In Britain (CD)

Ref: AMSC736

(UK Postage Free )


This superbly re-mastered CD presents previously unissued recordings of four legendary Bluesmen made in Britain in the 1950's, before the British blues boom really got underway in the 1960's!
Two of the sessions, featuring Big Bill Broonzy** in 1952 and blues duo Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee* six years later in 1958, capture these great performers in more informal surroundings, probably recorded at parties after official shows! Consequently they reveal a "warts and all" portrait of these legendary bluesmen, complete with whiskey enhanced singing and cigarette induced coughing…. Nice!!
Completing the programme are rare BBC Radio recordings from 1950 featuring Josh White*** both in conversation and in fine musical form.
