Depending on your interpretation of 'The Blues', this is a jamboree bag of mixtures.
There is no defining blues, nor jazz, nor any pigeon-holing. Blues, as much as any music, is produced by performers in the right frame of mind. Whether this is based on love, passion, despair, anguish, bereavement, joblessness, substance abuse, jail, frustration, happiness, self-expression, community spirit, I don't know. Who cares as long as the output is stunning? Blues is certainly from the heart and soul.This compilation extends the so-called 'traditional' ground roots music to more modern interpretations. The 12 bar format has been revamped. The emotion is still there.
Here we have, for example, Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, Lightnin' Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, Lead Belly, Little Walter,Fred McDowell, Son House. Undisputed bluesmen. Along come John Mayall, Alexis Korner acknowledged Bluesmen, followed by The Small Faces, Rod Stewart, Cream, ZZ Top, Canned Heat, Bo Diddley, Free, Tim Hardin, Rolling Stones. Billie Holiday and Bonnie Raitt are in there,too.
This is not being derisory nor prescriptive, but exemplifies where the boundaries in music are futile if they do ,if ever exist. The musical content is excellent. The order is offbeat. We have '100 Years'. It clearly is longer if not recorded and the next 100 is crystal ball work.
The accompanying notesheet gives basic discographical details and the anonymous school-book text is very generalised and not particularly informative. Having said that the basic musical heritage continues in performance from grass roots acoustic to earth-shattering electrics. 46 tracks to keep an open mind. Sound quality is very clean and good.

Format: Audio CD
Richard 'Alice Collector' misses the point somewhat. Any Blues collection will not please all of the people all of the time, there will always be things missing, tracks and artists that I or others think are more deserving. The objective with this collection was not to be a dry, simple look back at the Blues as a dead art form but one that is, and has, continually been evolving. Picking out the Small Faces as a band who should not be there is the perfect example of what the blues is all about. Music that is handed down, handed around all the while developing. The Small Faces track 'You Need Loving' is a cover of a Muddy Waters song, 'You Need Love' that Led Zeppelin took the idea that the Small Faces developed and reworked into 'Whole Lotta Love'.

As to the 2CDs not being in chronological order that is precisely what is wrong, as a listening experience, with so many compilations. These CDs are not meant as a dry text book-like exercise. It's supposed to be enjoyed and listened to, not over analysed. I helped put this CD set together and a great deal of thought went into the track selection, that's why it's called 100 Years of The Blues and not The Story of the Blues (the title of Paul Oliver's brilliant book) or Some Great Old Blues Singers from Before WW2.

Hard to please everyone with the title 100 years of the blues but I think there is something here for most blues enthusiasts. Good value for money and some classic tracks make for a good overall listening.
