• Big Bill BROONZY - On Tour In Britain, 1952: 'Live' In England & Scotland

These two JASMINE CDs offer a rare opportunity to hear Big Bill Broonzy recorded live in 1952, during his second and third tours of Great Britain. They allow us a chance to listen to Broonzy first on a night at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh when he struggled to succeed, and then nine months later during an evening of dazzling artistic command at Hove Town Hall, near Brighton, England. The concerts took place during a period when Broonzy's visibility and popularity outside the United States were on the rise. The recordings present him as he strived to claim the title with which he was advertised in Edinburgh: 'King of the Blues'.
