His vocal style was legendary long before his death, and his songs, including Big Bill Blues, Keys to the Highway, and Looking Up at Down, are some of the best known in the blues repertoire. His 1955 autobiography, Big Bill Blues, was the first - and only - book ever written by a country blues musician. It captures the full flavour of Broonzys unique voice as he tells about his thirty years of playing the blues. Here are intimate stories about other blues greats - Sleepy John Estes, Lonnie Johnson, Sonny Boy Williamson, Memphis Slim- Memphis Minnie, Washboard Sam - and descriptions of how he came up with the ideas for his songs.
