Album Notes and Credits
This curious three-disc box set mixes in old blues 78s with latter rediscovery recordings to form a rather random, but pleasantly cohesive (if somewhat cursory) introduction to early blues. The wide variety of styles here is impressive, though, ranging from the guttural roars of Charley Patton and Son House, through the highly personalized blues pieces of Sleepy John Estes, the haunting tunings of Skip James, to the near-jazz urban piano blues pieces of Peetie Wheatstraw and Amos Milburn. It's not an exhaustive box set, certainly, but it would probably work fine for casual listeners looking for a representative sampling of early blues styles. ~ Steve Leggett
