Format: Audio CD
Alligator Records are one of the great blues labels. Their artistes line-up is a veritable who's who of modern electric blues; performers such as Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Robert Cray, Roy Buchanan, and my favourite Son Seals to name just a few. This, of course, is a disservice to the many other great artistes on Alligator, but there's not enough space to name them all.
The 40th Anniversary Collection is just a great selection of good blues from nearly 40 blues men and women spread over 38 tracks, and 2CDs. Also included is a 28pg booklet with brief biographies of all the featured musicians. This is "genuine house rocking music" as they call. Thank you, Bruce Iglauer, for your dedication to good blues. Buy it, listen and enjoy - you won't be disappointed. Nathan Beehl

I bought this album after to hearing a couple of tracks on Radio 2 and haven't been able to stop playing it driving my family mad!!
It has really kick started my interest in blues music and I have since bought CDs from artists featured on the album, Tommy Castro Hard Believer and Smokin Joe Kubek & Bnois King Have Blues Will Travel again both excellent.

This Alligator compilation is so good that it is almost frightening.Heard most of blues men and women on this album but great to hear some new names I am not familiar with and to help even more with my blues education which seems to go on forever.The very underrated Janiva Magness is one particular artist I never got fully around to hearing but now ,after listening to the bluesy and quite soulful track ' Slipped, Tripped and Fell in Love ' I now have three of her excellent cds.Can't think of a bad number on here and all the recordings are absolutely first class.It certainly helps makes up for the time between listening to David Freemans excellent Blues and Boogie show on Saturday mornings on Jazz FM.

Wow !!
This is an absolutely fabulous compilation and is one where I have loved every single track
There's no real standouts as, unusually for a compilation, every track is first class.
I have been fortunate enough to see a lot of the artists on this compilation and they're all exceptionally good live.
To my mind most artistes in the blues idiom are better live and they don't make brilliant records but this is a wonderful compilation which would grace anybody's collection
Particular favourites are J J Grey & Mofro, Koko Taylor, Tommy Castro, Albert Collins and Tinsley Ellis but I could name half a dozen other artistes and they'd be equally as good.
Go buy it - you need this !!!!

Bought this as a present for my partner who is a big blues fan. He loved discovering new artists and all the information that went along with the collection. Definitely would recommend for anyone who loves the blues.
