With fifty great tracks here and something like just over two hours and twenty minutes of play time this is a great double CD compilation. What I really like about this is that you have the usual suspects as it were, and some that are perhaps less known today, unless you are an avid Blues fan. As Michael Heatley writes in the sleeve notes, nowadays some of the songs on here are more famous than the actual person playing them here.

As I get older I keep finding myself listening to the Blues more and more and although I do already have quite a few tracks out of these fifty presented here, I haven’t got them all and not necessarily by the artiste playing them here. Of course there are many types of Blues but probably nowadays, most people instantly think of this particular sub-genre as it has become so popular. Bringing electric guitars and amps to the Blues was really a way so that it could be better heard at venues, but it then sort of grew from there, giving a certain distinct sound, especially when you have artistes such as T-Bone Walker, who came from playing predominantly Jazz before hitting the Blues scene.

This compilation would be great as an introduction to someone relatively new to the Blues, and especially the Electric Blues. In all this is great to listen to.

I love the blues and for me the great thing about various artist albums is the introduction to talented musicians whose names I've not previously come across. So it is with Electric Blues, where the material & production are marvellous too. And for 50 wonderful tracks by superb artists the VFM of this 2xCD box set can't be beaten!

Fifty great tracks featuring well known and not so well known artistes. This double album complements acoustic and delta blues albums. The sounds are timeless greats.

Good introduction to electric blues, but if you have other compilations you will probably be doubling up on a number of tracks. Good value for money.

This is a very good selection of post war electric blues - fantastic value

Very god range of well known artists with less obvious picks.

A bluescompilation with high quality.
There is some information about the artists, that's good and of course with recording dates.
