I saw this as recomended to me by Amazon and read the titles which seemed to me to be a good selection for a blues compilation album. I also read that these were original recordings and so purchased a copy.
My mistake was in mis-understanding the term 'original recordings' for the original artists.
The recording artists on the compilation are not the original artists. They are not even credited on the sleeve notes because I looked desperately for a name, any name. I'm not really surprised that the artist or artists didn't want to be associated with this, what I can only describe as Muzak. If you like the bland sound that comes at you from lifts and shopping centres then this is definitely for you. If however you actually like music then don't buy this compilation.

There is some absolutely wonderful music on this MP3 and the likes of BB King on a duet with Slow Hand make it even better. My only problem with this item is that I didn't find it earlier.

Format: Audio CD
As you often find, CD's of music recorded by session musicians is never going to be less than extremely competent and can often be very, very good. This CD falls somewhere between those two. Take 'Boom Boom' for instance. You don't get the low-down dirty growl of John Lee Hooker's pounding guitar, but what do you get is a very good blues instrumental which may lack the darkness of the original but which still excites.

'House of the rising sun' follows the path and patterns you have come to expect since the release of the Animal's classic single complete with soulful Hammond organ interludes. Again, no blues-dirt but a very complete interpretation.

There is also room for some excellent acoustic blues guitar. This is especially evident in 'They'll get you in the end'. Jazz-blues isn't ignored either as can be heard in 'Moanin'.

'The day I cry for you' is notable for its Peter Green style of economic playing and sustained notes. There is even a hint of 'Albatross' in a few of the segments.

One thing that could well make this CD especially attractive to guitarists is that in many ways it is a showcase for a great many styles and classic licks and scales commonly used by blues musicians. It might very well serve as a learning resource as well as providing an excellemt MoR-style listening experience.

So - as long as you don't expect fret-fireworks or shredding or searing Bonamassa or Buchanan-style solos but prefer instead the idea of background blues, then this CD is well worth checking out.
