5.0 out of 5 stars ****1/2. Wonderful music August 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a terrific collection of Taj Mahal's bluesiest material, much of it culled from his first two albums.
Henry St. Clair Fredericks' renditions of songs like "Dust My Broom", "Leaving Trunk", and "Statesboro Blues" are probably the best covers of classic blues tunes you'll ever hear, traditional without being old-fashioned, and this CD offers a great selection of the highlights of his early work. A wonderful introduction to Taj Mahal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scorsese Knows the Blues! June 4, 2012
By S Snoid
Format:Audio CD
Taj is my favorite performer of all time. I first saw him in 1969 or 1970, and most recently, for the tenth time, last week. I'm not sure how many of his CDs I own, and there are a lot of records, too. I purchased this CD as a present to someone who didn't have any of his own. I've made collections myself for the car or for friends, and while I might have chosen a couple of different songs, most of them aren't the blues (e.g., "Slave Driver"), which is what Scorsese was trying to cover, so I think his taste is simply impeccable. If you're only going to buy one disc, this should be the one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good overview of Taj - not for a collector... September 10, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I got it before I went to see Taj Mahal recently at City Winery in NYC in August 2012.
I was very happy to have made the purchase, as I had not listened to him in awhile and it got me re-exposed to this great man's work. It also got me really in the mood to see him.
However, if you own a lot of his work, not my opinion...
