An impossible idea
A one volume best of the blues over an entire century? Impossible, it would have to be a twenty cd set to include all the artists who deserve to be included. But what's here is excellent--BB, Etta, Koko, John Lee, the Wolf, Muddy, Little Walter..... no arguments there. These are all great songs, and if you haven't spent the past 30 years listening to the blues here's a good instroduction. You should have these songs in your blues collection, along with hundreds more.
Where's the SRV?Robert Johnson?T-Bone? Albert King, Albert Collins? There's much better stuff than this. Although there is BB, Muddy, Buddy,etc. there should be more of them. There aren't enough of the classics on here. Crossroads, pride and joy, and others should definteley be on here.
This are the musicians that we have to thank for setting the stage, and paving the road for the music we listen to today. Anyone who does'nt appreciate this type of music, really is'nt a music lover at all.
