Big Bil Broonzy "Black Brown and White"
« on: April 16, 2016, 04:50:52 AM »
Hi guys,
any of you has any discographical information about Big Bill Broonzy's "Black Brown and White"?
Up until now I've found those three versions (I'll name them A, B and C):

A) slow version

B) with live audience

C) faster version

I've found some useful infos here and some youtube videos provide some notes, but not detailed as I would (and usually I don't blindly rely on the notes provided with youtube videos).

Could you help me with the recording details of these versions and eventually point me to others I'm just not aware of?

Thanks a lot.

- Dusty

For what it's worth a couple of decades back I produced such a list for some purpose or another. I thought it was for Weenie but couldn't locate it. However here's the list I compiled - extremely out of date now but here it is. There's probably umpteen others now on CD which may be retitled . Good luck and have fun.

Paris Sept 1951 (Vogue 134 (78rpm)
Paris 7 Feb 1952 (Vogue LP 272)
Antwerp 29 March 1952 (in concert)
Copenhagen 4 May 1956 (Storyville LP 114)
Chicago 14 Nov 1956 (Folkways LP 3586 - in interview with Studs Terkel)

Thank you, Bunker, for the information! It is a good starting point to understand which version was played when.
