Customer Reviews

Best of the Alligator Compliations my opinion anyway. Blues genre covers a wide variety of sounds, and my Blues may not be your Blues, but I have owned this on CD since sometime in the 90s and I still reached for it when selecting CDs for a road trip! It also introduced me to styles I had not heard, and artists I had missed. I haven't seen a better deal for $9.99 considering you get 35 songs which originally took 3 CDs and cost 3 times more (if you could even find it). I am pleased to discover this, since my car is old and the CD player broke, forcing me to rely on my iPod for music in the car. It takes so long to copy my CDs to iTunes in PC and then sync to my iPod, this is worth it to me for some of these compilations.

I also have the 20th Anniversary on CD, but I like the 25th better. Previewed the others here, with mixed thoughts. Will listen to previews of 30 and 35 before deciding to purchase, and taking a pass on the 40th. Adding that so you can judge my tastes to yours, since this is the first review.


I've been scouring iTunes for this compilation ever since I owned my iPod. I jumped at the chance to finally own this album for $9.99 since the only copy I ever owned was a copy of a copy of a copy. You absolutely will never find a more diverse sample of Chicago blues. You will end up reaching for this collection time and time again.
