There is some pretty good material in this 2 CD set but for something titled "the best of the blues" I find it a bit disappointing as there are much, much better versions of him playing these tunes available. If you want to hear him unpolished and very young, then this is for you. However, for he most part, except with the late BB KING and Albert King and Collins, like I said, there are better versions to be had. I am still glad I got it, don't get me wrong but he was such a mega-genious that I would say if you have limited amounts to spend or are kust new to hearing him, look harder. Another tragic loss of a great musician !
