40 ORIGINAL BLUES CLASSICS on 2 CDs for a really cheap price. These sets really are a steal at this price.
Why are these releases so reasonably priced?
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.
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.
