I Feel So Good review Ü 104 A major figure in American blues and folk music Big Bill Broonzy 1903–1958 left his Arkansas Delta home after World War I headed north and became the leading Chicago bluesman of the 1930s His success came as he fused traditional rural blues with the electrified sound that was beginning to emerge in Chicago This however was just one step in his remarkable journey Big Bill was constantly reinventing himself both in reality and in his retellings of it Bob Riesman’s groundbreaking biography tells the compelling life story of a lost figure from the annals o. Big Bill Broonzy proved to be a pliable accommodating bluesman by changing with the times and giving people what they wanted from hokum to a urbane strain of country blues to bigger blues ensembles featuring horns to finally a rebirth as a folkfolk blues artist in the 1950s Broonzy s reinvention of himself musically mirrored his reshaping of his own history as Bob Riesman s fine biography I Feel So Good attests Riesman notes that Broonzy s 1955 autobiography Big Bill Blues had its way with the facts That 1893 date of birth Ten years early The name Broonzy the name Bill Made up Serving in World War I Not so much That Uncle Jerry he learned so much from Nobody else heard of him Children Nobody s really sure how many he actually had That second wife Who was she again Oh well Broonzy s focus on flavor rather than facts nonetheless managed to give us a good idea of the forces that shaped his life and that which he fought against The recasting of these facts as Riesman attests was not built on malicious lies but on Broonzy s own truth true enough in its wayGiven Broonzy s fanciful way with his life details Riesman had uite a task in front of him He succeeds very nicely The details the author relates of Broonzy s early personal life are sketchy When Broonzy moves to Chicago from Arkansas and begins in 1927 what would be a 30 year recording career the life milestones are concrete Still here Riesman often is relating recording dates and session musicians and musical contemporaries along with dissections of his songs Riesman reproduces many of Broonzy s early lyrics which is appreciated Like a good historian where details on Broonzy are sketchy Riesman gives us the flavor of what life was like for African Americans in Broonzy s time and the recording climate from the lean Depression years to the 1942 recording ban and lists societal statistics of the dayBroonzy recorded freuently feeding his record companies insatiable hunger for product His most enduring song was Key to the Highway Thanks says Eric Clapton Broonzy s blues legacy went far beyond his prolific recordings as a primary artist however He played guitar as a sideman for almost every major blues star based in Chicago in the 1920s through the 1940s As time went on this genial well liked man took many of these younger performers under his wing nurturing artists helping them record boosting their careers Washboard Sam Memphis Minnie Jazz Gillum Big Maceo Memphis Slim Sonny Boy Williamson No 1 Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee Pete Seeger Broonzy recorded with or toured with all of these and His pallbearers included Studs Terkel Muddy Waters who recorded an album of Broonzy written and Broonzy associated tracks and Tampa Red Broonzy seeing which way the wind was blowing in the early 1950s turned to a folkier musical approach touring with a folk music review appearing with Terkel on Chicago radio broadcasts and eventually touring Europe extensively Probably because Broonzy s folk years are so well represented with recordings and writings Riesman goes into great detail about Broonzy s 1950s life As information about the bluesman is readily available though Riesman s analysis and reproduction of song lyrics nearly dries up other than discussing Broonzy s important Black Brown and White Blues They says If you re white you re all right If you re brown stick around But if you re black oh brother get back get back get back Riesman sometimes struggles to pinpoint just who Broonzy was but then Bill seemed to be into clouding the waters anyway He s presented as a good well loved man but on a couple of occasions perhaps understandably Broonzy shows resentment notably regarding Chicago music bigwig Lester Melrose and an occasion in Europe when he lets his anger show about how blacks are treatedOne of Bill s interesting sojourns was the year he spent as a custodian at what is now Iowa State University in Ames Bill sought some healthy country air he found himself the darling of students and professorial typesFor Riesman the timing of I Feel So Good couldn t be better Riesman ties in Broonzy s Just a Dream lyrics about Bill as a black man sitting in the president s chair and shaking his hand but it was just a dream with having a black man living in the White House in 2010Riesman s book features some fantastic photos Bill s always smiling but precious little in the way of a discography unfortunately instead throwing out a few essential discs from Broonzy s various musical periodsAll told a job very well done though at 255 pages of main text too short for my tastes Hopefully this work will help spur interest in this fantastic bluesman who undeniably was a giant of the genre but who seems to get shortchanged by the general public which seems to prefer its bluesmen with hellhounds on their trailsAs a final note I must say that this University of Chicago Press book a hardcover is beautiful physically My bookseller noted it when I bought it running her

I Feel So Good review Ü 104 F music history I Feel So Good traces Big Bill’s career from his rise as a nationally prominent blues star including his historic 1938 appearance at Carnegie Hall to his influential role in the post World War II folk revival when he sang about racial injustice alongside Pete Seeger and Studs Terkel Riesman’s account brings the reader into the jazz clubs and concert halls of Europe as Big Bill's overseas tours in the 1950s ignited the British blues rock explosion of the 1960s Interviews with Eric Clapton Pete Townshend and Ray Davies reveal Broonzy’s. Broonzy is maybe not as heralded as other bluesmen but he is a big influence so I was excited to see this offered as a free e book selection from The University of Chicago Press Those who have spoke of his influence include Clapton Townsend who writes the into here Elvis the Kinks Rory Gallagher Steve Howe and many Phil and Dave Alvin just released an album of Broonzy covers earlier this year I am going to butcher the uote but it s something like Clapton said he loved Broonzy for his precision while Ray Davies says it was his ability to go off script It seems contradictory but it shows what Broonzy meant to so manyThe most interesting thing to me is the span of Broonzy s career He was born and raised in the Arkansas Delta starting to play the blues after returning home from World War 1 making him a contemporary of Robert Johnson Charlie Patton and Son House He moved to Chicago in the 1930s and was a mentor and godfather for that city s famous blues scene playing with Sonny Boy Williamson I and paving the way for the likes of Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon Post WW2 he found fans within the folk movement and also comradery with the jazz and gospel scenes This brought him into working with the likes of Pete Seeger Lead belly Studs Turkel and performing with Mahalia Jackson In the 1950s he toured the UK extensively and his public figure ended up being a huge influence on all of those great British rock bands that emerged from the blues influenceI tend to like music biographies but this one tends to be a bit too academic for my liking It s a pretty dry read though it certainly would be worthwhile for some It provides Broonzy s insight of growing up in the South in the post Reconstruction era Reisman does a good job covering the music business specifically what they call race music as it was in the 30s and 40s I also found it interesting that Broonzy spent a couple years in Ames Iowa which is a town I have spent some time in If you are already well acuainted with Broonzy I am sure this will be valuable but is a bit of a slog otherwise
