Another treasure of American music well deserving of a biography. Highly recommended are the Yazoo label's two releases of Broonzy's 1930s recordings, and especially the Verve label's 3-CD set entitled "The Bill Broonzy Story" recorded in 1957, a year before his death. What is great about this 1957 session is not only the great musicianship, but also the between-song banter where he recalls early memories, explains guitar techniques, and song-writing influences. Priceless stuff.
