5.0 out of 5 stars A Track Listing Blues for You Soul.
THE OKEH BLUES STORY is a wonderful collection of 50 original blues recordings.

The music over these 2 Cds really does speak for itself.These sets really are a steal at this price.

The simple reason that these sets are as cheap as chips is that the tracks are public domain.

That means the rights to the music has gone and any old Dick or...

This review is from: The Okeh Blues Story (Audio CD)
THE OKEH BLUES STORY is a wonderful collection of 50 original blues recordings.

The music over these 2 Cds really does speak for itself.These sets really are a steal at this price.

The simple reason that these sets are as cheap as chips is that the tracks are public domain.

That means the rights to the music has gone and any old Dick or Harry can release them.

The bad news for the previous rights holders means good news for us, the buyers for if the price is too high we will not buy.
So the sets are at a more than reasonable price.
Next year the law changes to fall in line with the Americans and the 50 year rule will be finished.

Now these sets really are a mixed bag.

Some tracks and artists you will know- others not.

But that is the real joy- you just might discover some tracks you have never heard and enjoy if not then the FF feature is just for you.

However if you are like me and of a certain age you want to read which artists and tracks are featured but Amazon have scrunched up all the tracks making it hard to read so I've spaced them out so you can read them more easily.

This revised list should help?
