Format: Audio CD
This is the third in the series of 'How Britain got the blues' and represents the records that influenced the London R&B bands, including the Stones, the Yardbirds, the Pretty Things, Downliners Sect etc during the first Blues Boom of the early 60s. Included are gems from the Chess label by Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley including the signature song of the era Muddy's "Got My Mojo Working" which every spotty herbert with a mouth organ (including myself) was singing . Also included are very influential electric blues songs by Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, Slim Harpo etc plus a couple of slightly more obscure cult classics like "You Don't Love Me" by Willie Cobbs (later covered by John Mayall) and Billy Boy Arnold's "I Wish You Would" (covered by the Yardbirds). So far so good but then the compilation goes slightly off-piste by including a few straight rock and roll songs, some country blues and two early Bob Dylan covers of traditional blues. I accept that these probably would have influenced some bands but so would the Shadows, Lonnie Donegan and Acker Bilk - I just feel that you've got to stop somewhere and I'm afraid that for me these songs didn't fit in with the rest of the excellent songs on this compilation, so it looses one star.
