AllMusic Review by

Broke Down Engine Blues collects tracks re-mastered from 78s that Blind Willie McTell recorded in the mid-'30s, near the close of what would be his last extended go-round with commercial record labels. Some of his most famous material is here, including his magnificent signature tune, "Statesboro Blues," two takes of "Broke Down Engine Blues," and the sublime "Cold Winter Day."
