Note: Big Bill Broonzy describes the first record he ever made, with John Thomas as a partner. He didn't receive any money from these recordings. In 1928 he recorded again under Lester Melrose. 1931-1934 he was recording in New York. He became more of a songwriter than a performer. Recording companies would take his songs and have other performers record them.
