This 1994 offering is their definitive 5 star product. As the title suggests they are wanting to pay their respects both to the genre and to particular artists. Every track is pure gold and the selection together shows the breadth of this band's output, their technical ability, and the respect in which they are held these days (evidenced by Jools Holland's contribution to 'Let The Good Times Roll'). One added bonus: although their production is always good, this Blues Band album sounds sharper and better mixed than any of their others. Although this is not a greatest hits collection it is in another sense The Very Best of the Blues Band. Oh, by the way, if you didn't think the world could take another version of 'Sweet Home Chicago', this CD proves you well and truly wrong.

Another excellent release from Britain's premier blues artists. Recorded in the early nineties, when the band had been together for just over a decade, this is in impressive tribute to the music that inspired the members. Each had an impressive career before the band was formed, and brought their experience and talent together to form an impressive musical unit. On this recording they gave it their all to do justice to a set of tunes that had originally set them on their musical path.

It's a grand journey through some old classics. The band do well at finding new ways to interpret what would otherwise be tired old standards. Especially impressive is Paul Jones solo reworking of the jazz standard `Work Song', belnding an impressive harmonica with his distinctive vocals. The rest of the band are no slouches either, and there is some classic material to be found here. A great album of reworked standards, with a variety of tempos and moods that will guarantee something here for everyone to enjoy.

Bouught the audio tape back in the 80's which recently got chewed up . Songs are so good I decided to buy CD version straight away. Sound quality so much better than the tape. Buy it you, will not be disappointed.

While this is a good representative Blues Band album that almost rates 5 stars, I have only given it 4 because I would recommend getting early albums such as "Ready" first.
