There seems to be another resurgence in interest in Blues music, and this is an essential collection for either the newcomer to the Devils Music, or the hardened collector. I bought it as an introduction to the blues, over 70 of the finest Blues tracks, featuring all of the great names in Blues and some lesser known names as well. Fantastic collection to step back in time to, where the raw emotion of these great artists comes to the fore. If your interested in the blues or tempted to try the blues its a must have, and at this price what have you got to lose?
I would recommend this compilation to anyone who, like me, wanted to learn more about and hear more blues music. The four CDs cover a wide range of artists. There are a couple of songs I don't like but overall I think this is a brilliant compliation.
This is one of the best blues compilations that I have heard for a long time. It caters for all styles, from live Chicago blues by greats like Muddy Waters to the jazzy feel of Koko Taylor's track Wang Dang Doodle. A truly great compilation. A must for all blues virgins!
Rated this highly because of the sheer quality that shines throughout this album with some well-known and some not so well-known artists featured however each track is a gem,if you love the Blues,especially Mississippi and Delph then this is for you
Everyone's here from Blind Willie McTell, Bessie Smith & Memphis Minnie in the 1930's to Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker & Howlin' Wolf in the 1950's & 60's. Nice selection, beautifully packaged and a very good price.
