Format: Audio CD
The Blues have influenced all modern popular music in the US, what with the influence of jazz and rock and roll etc. Is there anyone who doesn't like the Blues? With some of the greatest Blues singers of all time and some tracks sung by the original singers there is more than enough for anyone here. At the price and the number of tracks here you just can't go wrong - this is definitely one cd that you have to have in your collection.

This anthology repeats a number of tracks ( about a dozen) that you'll find everywhere, but also has some rarer artists and songs that make it worth the ridiculously cheap price. A good ones for blues fans new and not-so-new!

Format: Audio CD
This is a great compilation of some of the best 50's post-Depression blues records, so there ain't any of the very early blues records included here, and no Robert Johnson, despite of beeing named on the cover. The liner notes from Michael Heatley are brief but informative.
There is one serious issue to this compilation however. I noticed some of the typical MP3 artefacts on one of the first tracks of CD 2 and according to a quick analysis of the waveforms at least some of the tracks from the second disc are sourced from MP3s. So be aware of that.

Wanted a taste of old time blues and this turned out to be ideal. A few tunes I knew and many I am learning day by day. Having read Ronnie Woods autobiography I can see how much of the early Stones stuff was influenced by many blues players. Good foot tapping stuff, recomend to anyone wanting some ol' blues at good price.

This is indeed essential listening at phenomenal value. Great to hear the original versions of tracks that have become well known by other artists, check out 'I Put a Spell on You' by Screamin' Jay Hawkins.....mind blowing! The sound quality is remarkably good too.

I bought this album for less than the price of a pint of beer, and I now feel ashamed for getting it so cheap. It is simply one of the best blues collections around, with hardly a weak track among the many featured. These are the best of the best artists and some great songs. It's a treasure trove that you can dig amongst for years to come.

very good blues compilation for the money, but I was disappointed to find out that tracks 16 and 17 on the first disc were badly distorted,I checked on a friends CD player but it did not improve.Nevertheless I still enjoyed listening to this product. W.F.WILLIAMS."blueslider" Cheshire,England.
