Product Description

Bill Wyman's personal tribute to the music and musicians that inspired him to pick up a bass guitar and become a founding member of the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world, The Rolling Stones. Spread over 2 CDs are 46 tracks from from Mamie Smith’s “Goin’ Crazy With The Blues” (1926) to Elmore James’ “Dust My Broom” (1951) via familiar names such as Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and B B King and more obscure artists. The tracks on this album were personally selected and compiled by Bill Wyman and reveal a fascinating insight into the music and musicians who recorded these tracks. The booklet contains many photos and extensive sleeve notes on all artists featured.

Format: Audio CD
I expected this double CD to attempt yet another potted history of the blues as the story of the music's evolution is told in detail in the book "Bill Wymans Blues Odyssey" but instead it creates an atmosphere of its own. Here you will find the roots of the blues, sung and played by men and women who helped to shape and develop a music that reflected the poverty, hardships and injustice of the people yet is now so universally celebrated. Sit quietly and listen to the CD in a darkened room and imagine the smoke-filled atmosphere of a Delta juke joint as each artist brings their own interpretation to "singing the blues".
The CD has less direct connection with Bill Wyman than the book, although he is credited with making the selection of artists and songs but there are no examples of him or The Stones or, indeed, any of the other 60's or 70's white blues bands who copied the black Americans they heard on radio and on record. This may be disappointing to some rock-blues fans but the real blues enthusiast will find everything you would want on this double CD from the barrel-house piano of Speckled Red to the slide guitar of Elmore James, from Bessie Smith to BB King this is a great album. And for those who think that the blues is slow, melancholy music you're very wrong; people used to play and listen to the blues to purge themselves of troubles. Most of this is foot-tapping lively stuff and if you can keep still enough to read at the same time Bill's book is the obvious companion.

Bill Wyman is an authority on the blues and the pre history of it and the book is as good as the first attempts to chronicle the music by Paul Oliver.
The recordings on this double CD fortunately keep to what the blues is really about rather than the revivalists of the 6os.It begins with Mamie Smith who cut the first blues record-not here but its another one by her made in 1926-and ends with Elmore James of 1951 though its not in strict chronological order
I should add that Amazon have made a total mess of the track details and its not till halfway through CD 2 they catch up and get them right
