4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Expanding Your Choice of Artists 4 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this after buying 1 & 2. I love blues and had heards bits of these artists, but not a lot. I would suggest that they might be a bit to rootsy for the newcomer to blues but there are some fabulous tracks to be enjoyed. I am now looking at Otis Span, Johhny Young, Big Walter Horton and some others to join my collection.

I would recommend buying all three.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chicago blues of the first order. A definitive album! 7 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
A definitive album! It features songs by Johnny Shines and Johnny Young, both backed by Big Walter Horton (who takes center stage once, with Charlie Musselwhite on second harp, to blow the instrumental Rockin' My Boogie). These are some of the best recordings you'll find by any of these artists.
Horton is absolutely magnificent. There is no harp-man that gets a tone quite as full as Horton's, and he is at his best on this album. One listen will prove why this lesser-known bluesman is considered one of the Chicago harp masters along-side Little Walter and Sonny Boy. The first three notes he blows on Black Spider Blues will pierce your heart.
You will also be hard-pressed to find Johnny Shines sounding any better than he does here. It is not an exaggeration to say that Shines has a more capable voice than the majority of bluesmen and it is displayed in full power on this disc. Shines' Dynaflow Blues (an alteration of Robert Johnson's Terraplane Blues) is absolutely breathtaking.
Johnny Young is also in top form. His band on this album gets a very complete sound not found on most of his recordings. One More Time just plain rocks and Young's work with the mandolin on Stealin' Back is incredible.
Don't be fooled if you've never heard of these guys. These are bluesmen of the first order and they all perform to the best of their capabilities. This is the best album in the series (which is made up of two other excellent albums) and I'd say one of the best blues albums out there. Among my 100 blues albums this is one of my two or three favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of great tours of the Blues 13 Oct 2009
By Christopher R. Kerr - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On the heels of a SATURDAY REVIEW of these three records, I hitch-hiked from my Army post in Indianapolis to Chicago's ROSE RECORDS where helpful clerks help me find them. I've treasured them for more than 40 years, bought them in new formats and never been disappointed when I turned them on. WOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super - but you'll probably want the boxed set 23 Feb 2013
By Peter McGruff - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love the atmospheric picture on the cover so much I might pay extra for it, but all 13 tracks from this volume (Vol. 3) are included on a single disc of the boxed set, and similarly with vols 1 and 2. Since all three volumes are great, the boxed set is the better buy. I guess the spendthrift who buys the three volumes singly avoids the unpleasantness of having the plastic tray come apart, as it always does.

Considered as an individual purchase, the disc is just as distinguished as the first two, if the names aren't quite as well known. The star is Big Walter Horton, who features in all three of the groups on the disc. Big Walter is distinguished from 'Little Walter' Jacobs who wrote, sang and played harp with Muddy Waters and others. Big Walter's recorded 'oeuvre' is not as easy to find, but he is one of the greats. If you ever listen to Paul Butterfield you will hear lots of echoes of Big Walter's delectably dry tone. Harpist Charlie Musselwhite, who appears on one track, is a white player who recorded with John Hammond Jr. and Bonnie Raitt among others, as well as under his own name.

The three bands represented here overlap quite a bit in personnel, so you don't get as varied a cast as with vol. 1 or 2. On the other hand, this disc is the only one of the three connecting the dots of Chicago blues and Delta blues, via Shines's Robert Johnson-ish Dynaflow Blues. Typically drummerless, Delta blues departs from the 12 bar format by frequently throwing in an extra measure or half-measure as a turnaround; here, the drummer has to try to keep something like a steady beat going against the irregular structure. Interesting. In sum, not as many big names here but perhaps the purest example of the Chicago blues genre.
