“Culled from their huge back catalog, this superb sampler is also 'budget priced,' thus providing tempting incentive for even frugal CD consumers . . . this CD should serve well as an introduction to past masters of this style, which is where the blues began!

. . . All of these men are undeniably perfect examples of a time when songs told stories and blues music wasn't buried (to be brutally polite) by excessively noisy guitar players. This disc is very highly recommended! ”

(George Hansen — Blues Revue)
