Includes fully illustrated 64page booklet.
Well what a set this one is… it is not JUST the music that makes it so valuable (I nearly wrote important)…The 64 page booklet (fully illustrated with labels, photos and billboards) is an exemplar of how these things should be done. Each individual track comes with a textual analysis and full recording details…The wealth of information presented is both impressive and delightful. Impressive because of the volume of research that must have been undertaken to produce the text and delightful because of the fascinating information delivered to the reader, particularly in the context of the sequencing of the tracks…there is more information here than will often be found in some books purporting to discuss the genre.
Ian McKenzie Blues & Rhythm
Breathtaking collection of vintage greats…brilliantly packaged with a detailed 68-page booklet, it’s hard to think of a music fan who wouldn’t want this in their collection.
Terry Staunton Record Collector
Hugely entertaining…ease back and luxuriate in the warm flow of mostly black sounds.
Geoff Brown Mojo
A multi-genre, colour-blind, cross-label and highly inclusive collection… delivers a history lesson with a helluva backbeat… Essential music by any measure, in a box set which does it justice and best of all, it rocks like a mother.
