Format: Audio CD
Despite the rather naff (and one suspects "PC") title this album is well worth the money.

This is a great compilation, covering a wide variety of blues tunes. There are a number of gems here that you just won't find on any other blues collection. I suspect that only a venerable academic institution like the Smithsonian would go to the bother of putting this together.

Stand out track for me is, "St James' Infirmary" by Snooks Eaglin. I doubt whether any singer has ever sounded more world-weary than Snooks does in this song. You may remember it from a Budweiser advert a few years ago.

All of the other songs are good and this album belongs in the collection of anyone who loves the blues.
