  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (3/23/95, p.123) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...documents the complex cross-pollination that routinely occurred among Memphis blues artists. This in-breeding gave the city a strong but shifting blues sound, rather than one that could be clearly distinguished from the Delta style or East Coast approaches..."
    Living Blues (9-10/94, pp.89-90) - " excellent introduction to the diverse music played by pre-war Memphis blues artists..."
