This is a great sampling of the blues.

I think Real Nigg** Gone Ride and Is There A Heaven 4 A Thug were 2 of the best one's on there.

This greatest hits collection assembles fifteen performances from the famous television series "Austin City Limits." As a tribute to the televised music venue, it's a fine CD. And as a live blues disc it doesn't get much better than this. The recordings range from Lightnin' Sam Hopkins' "Rock Me Baby" from 1978 to Delbert McClinton's "Leap of Faith" from 1997. In between, are hot numbers from Albert Collins, Jimmie Vaughan, Keb' Mo', Gatemouth Brown, Dr. John, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Miss Lavelle White, the Neville brothers, Rory Block, and W.C. Clark. That's quite a lineup. Among the best tracks here, however, is Stevie Ray Vaughan's blistering performance of "Love Struck Baby" from 1983, when he was near the peak of his powers. B.B. King also turns in a fine "Night Life" from 1982 packed with his trademark vibrato and phrasing. Hot stuff.

This is a great sampling of the blues. B.B. King does an excellent "Night Life", his guitar is fabulous! One of my favorites is W.C. Clark, who I had never heard before. "Queen Bee" is the best Taj Mahal I have heard. Miss Lavelle White, Stevie Ray, Lightnin' Sam, Collins....I could go on and on. The recording quality varies very little from track to track, which is expected from Austin City Limits, as they are one of the few TV program which delivers excellent sound. Don't pass this one up!
Enjoy!

Than Buddy Guy, doing "Mary Had A Little Lamb" This cd was a pleasant surprise, too bad Austin City Limits does not offer more of these blues tributes on cd and dvd..Would be sweet to hear the full hour performance of Buddy Guy and others listed on here. Buy it..You won't be disappointed, if you are, then you just don't get the blues.

There werent that many really good tracks on here. The first three tracks were pretty good but it went on the downhill for the next 10 until track 12, with Prime Suspects. But the main track I was really into was track 17, with a new guy named Freedom, I think his name is Short Circuit now though. I think he's really lyrically talented and am looking forward to his cd. Also, check out Da 504 Boyz coming out.

I LOVE NO LIMIT, but this album is just OK there is a hot Snoop Dogg track but the album lacks quality, MP and his crew should focus on Quality Tracks, like many of the No Limit albums, too many get release too fast, slow down and focus on quality! By the way if you are looking for a No Limit album, try Snoop or Master P
