As a modern blues afficionado, I spent a long time choosing this: I was after a comprehensive compilation covering early acoustic roots to present day electric blues. There are so many compilations to choose from, but this one turned out to be as good as I'd hoped - there is not a single track here that I didn't enjoy, and I think you will too. Some you will already know, some you won't, but there are no fillers here. CD1 features acoustic country blues, CD2 the electric sounds of classic urban blues and CD3 modern artists 'keeping the tradition alive'. Nice.
