VARIOUS ARTISTS An Easy Introduction To The Blues – Top 15 albums
Yep, you read it correctly this is a fifteen album box set, neat solid card box containing the CDs in card slip cases, this is actually eight physical Cds which contain the fifteen albums. There is too much music to review here so best to tell you who is included to whet your appetites with each act having two complete albums on one disc except Professor Longhair who’s No Buts, No Maybes stands alone and Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson’s Space Guitar Master are both selections from heir Hoodoo works. Others include; BB King, Etta James, Muddy Waters, JLH, then Bobby Bland doubles up with Howlin’ Wolf while Jimmy Reed doubles up with Ray Charles and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins with johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson. There is also a twenty page booklet with smashing pictures and notes on each artist/act included as well as a summary ‘About The Blues’ but odd I could not find writing credits for these informative pieces.
What a great voyage of discovery for newcomers this set is.
