    Liner Note Author: Alfie Falckenbach.
    This is one of the most mind-blowing two-disc blues compilations ever. Add in the budget price factor and it simply cannot be beat. This is an excellent primer on the blues guitar. Containing a whopping 50 tracks, it is an incomplete but very attractive, hell, even essential compilation of blues guitar masters, including some of the original Delta bluesmen such as Blind Willie McTell, Charley Patton, Lonnie Johnson, Robert Johnson, Kokomo Arnold, Big Bill Broonzy, Skip James, Johnny Shines, Blind Boy Fuller, etc. -- about the only ones really missing are Son House and Blind Lemon Jefferson. The latter-day guitar men like Muddy Waters, Hubert Sumlin, Elmore James, et al., are also here, together with the wise inclusions of Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Jimmy Reed, Earl Hooker, and Guitar Slim. Also featured are latter-day (in terms of discovery only) Delta men like R.L. Burnside. The Texas congregation is well represented by T-Bone Walker, Lightnin' Hopkins, Albert Collins, B.B. King, Johnny Winter, etc. The British bluesmen are here as well, like John Mayall, Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Kim Simmonds, Rory Gallagher (yes, he's Irish), and Harvey Mandel, along with latter-day cats like Chris Spedding and Lonesome Dave Peverett. The Americans include Buddy Guy, Michael Bloomfield, Walter Trout and Henry Vestine (separately, yet both of Canned Heat), and many more. Simply put, for the money this wonderfully historical document cannot be beat. ~ Thom Jurek
