As a young Blues artist in early 1950's Chicago, Billy Boy Arnold was befriended and inspired by Big Bill Broonzy, one of the 20th century's greatest musical icons. Now, 60 years later, Billy Boy has gathered together this generation of Chicago's best acoustic Blues players (Billy Flynn, Eric Noden) for the recording of Billy Boy Sings Big Bill
a wonderful exploration of the pure Blues Treasure to be found in Big Bill's timeless Songbook. A Blues Legend in his own right, Billy Boy was a key figure on the incendiary Chicago Blues scene of the 1950's and a major influence on the British Blues scene of the 1960's.
Classic Chicago Blues done Perfectly. Billy Boy Arnold sings his heart out here, no doubt making his mentor proud. Pure Delight! --Allmusic.com
