‘You might think that when you’ve been around for a long time and love music as much as we all do at Blues Matters, that we might become a little blasé receiving CDs to review. You’d be wrong…This is a staggering project, a sheer delight…You can stick a pin in anywhere and come up with a gem of a recording. What these records will present to even the most avid R&B aficionado is a revelation… lifting the lid on a buried treasure chest of arcane recordings, all in a style decades ahead of their time… Every one of these tracks is utterly satisfying. If you’re a true R&B fan, you will not experience a finer collection this year or any other. Exhilarating, educational, historical, but above all, extremely musical, a complete evening’s unforgettable R&B entertainment…Think you know your blues history? Think again. As this has taught me, you’re never too old to learn.’
