Absolutely brilliant. Staggering value for money. What a sensational selection of blues, old and new. A "must buy".

Don't own this album, I just want to know why Glenn Cook's review features the track listing for some other album 2 CD's and 31 songs in total. Having said that, I would appreciate someone telling the album reviewed, preferably Glenn Cook, as I would certainly buy it. May buy this one too.

So, what do we have here? An absolutely stonking compilation of various forms of 'da blooz' ranging from the 50s right through to the turn of the century. This comp has been put together by people who appreciate the music in its various forms. Big thanks to Universal for this 20-track offering.
It starts with an outtake from 'Layla' -Mean old World, Eric on acoustic and Duane on acoustic slide, then Jonny Lang, a 15-year old! with his take on 'Good Morning Little Schoolgirl.
The quite precocious talent of Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Shame Shame Shame, recorded when he was just 18, but sounding like he's been around forever is followed by a live version of Flood Down in Texas from Stevie Ray Vaughan Montreaux '82. Robert Cray's Smoking Gun is next, then Susan Tedeschi with her self-penned 'Just Won't Burn' from her debut album of 1999, sounding not unlike Janis Joplin. [In 2000 she opened for BB King's concerts]
An evil take on 'Little Red Rooster' from Luther Allinson [on the Motown label!] is followed by an early Buddy Guy version of Willie Dixon's 'Let Me Love You Baby' then on to the Allman Bros live 'Statesboro Blues' from the Fillmore.
Now it gets really interesting. The rest of the 11 tracks were recorded between 1952 and 1969 featuring the giants of the original blues artists. Howlin' Wolf/Spoonful, Muddy Waters/Hoochie Coochie Man, Freddie King/Have You Ever Loved a Woman, Big Mama Thornton/Hound Dog, Jimmy Reed/Big Boss Man, John Lee Hooker/One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer, Koko Taylor/Wang Dang Doodle, Albert King/Born Under A Bad Sign, Etta James/Tell Mama, Bobby 'Blue' Bland/Turn on Your Love Light, and last but in no way least BB King with the heart-breakingly beautiful 'The Thrill Is Gone.
A wonderful, wonderful album, full of surprises and a credit to all the artists on it. Buy with confidence.

Absolutely pointless having an album of mixed songs for sale, but not telling you what is on it. It's a bit like buying vegetables for dinner, but you can't look in the bag to see what you've got. Poor way of selling by Amazon, from a company noted for how good it is at everything else.
