Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Edward Chmelewski just couldn't wait to sling the good blues slop around, so he's kicked off the quarter-century celebration of his label's founding a few months early with this blockbuster label overview: two audio discs and an all-video CD-ROM. Some longtime Pig followers will grouse because dependable old albums by Chicago blues gents like Otis Rush and Mighty Joe Young are slighted, and this reviewer will keep kosher rather than hear the songs of Bill Perry, John Mooney, and Chris Cain again, but there's much to enjoy here. Among the worthies representing the contemporary-blues camp are Deborah Coleman, Popa Chubby, Chris Thomas King, and Tommy Castro. The older generation is well represented well by Snooky Pryor, Magic Slim, George Harmonica Smith, and Muddy Waters. --Frank-John Hadley

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible collection at a superb price! January 4, 2002
By A Customer
The history of Blind Pig really comes out on this collection. You can tell where the blues has been -- and where it's headed!
There are some of the great blues musicians - BB King with Arthur Adams, Tommy Castro (solo and with Delbert McClinton), Muddy Waters, Jimmy Thackery, and Coco Montoya. There are soon-to-be blues legends - Deborah Coleman, Popa Chubby, EC Scott, and Chris Cain. Each disc sounds like a radio show, with great transitions and flow. There are even out-of-print tunes by the Vipers and the Memphis Rockabilly Band.
This cd is great for people looking for an introduction -- and great for folks just looking to have all the greats on one collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Compilation! March 6, 2002
Five years after its last anniversary release, the pig is back and this year, its phat! This compilation features Blind Pig recording artists, mainly with an emphasis on releases over the last 5 years. The exception being some older material from the likes of Muddy Water--"Honey Bee", George "Harmonica" Smith's--"Last Chance", Pinetop Perkins--"Ida B" and a couple of other notable legends. These artists are blended nicely with some outstanding contemporary musicians like Muddy Waters guitarist--Bob Margolin, Steve Miller's harpman--Norton Buffalo, Tommy Castro, former Nighthawk guitarist--Jimmy Thackery, O'Brother Were Art Thou's--Chris Thomas King, The son of Muddy Waters--Big Bill Morganfield and scores of others. Too many stanout tracks to list but check out the duet by Tommy Castro and Delbert McClinton "Don't Turn Your Heater Down" or John Mooney's "Gone To Hell" to get a taste of what this CD is about. As if this allstar cast were not enough, the Pig has included a CD-ROM that contains some very interesting material including off the cuff interviews with Muddy Water's and Snooky Pryor as well as gritty performance by Popa Chubby. I have not come across a finer compilation. I wonder what the Pig has in store for it's 30th anniversary?

5.0 out of 5 stars Hog heaven November 4, 2002
I bought this as a sampler for potential purchases of the musicians on the discs. This is a very fine collection of foot stompin jumpin dancin blues. very enjoyable to listen to. Great sound quality as well. A bargain...with plenty of ideas for other purchases.
