Recorded July 1957
Produced & Directed by Bill Randle
The first of three sets Verve released in 1959, all recorded July 1957. The day after the sessions, Broonzy would enter the hospital with lung cancer, and he’d be gone before the release of these albums.
Classic collection of acoustic blues, all good with several highlights including “Southbound Train,” “Joe Turner Blues,” and “I Ain’t Gon’ Be Treated This Way.”
