Funny thing, when I quit smoking, I rewarded myself by allowing myself to take that $3 each day and spend it on something else. This turned out to be a bad idea, because years later I'm still spending that $3 per day on self indulgence. So today i spent my $3 on the this essential blues record and boy am I glad I did.

For .03 dollars or 3 cents per song, I bought myself the sounds that modern music is rooted in. The music that founded rock, added to country and created lo fi in all in all it's scratchy glory. It's kind of neat to hear the fuzz in the background accentuated through the remastering of these classic blues. Incredible guitar playing by bands like Tampa Red who were fun to find. I discovered where alot of what I love in modern music originated. I will enjoy that $3 bucks for yrs to come. Heck I'd have paid half that for Ray Charles Hit the road Jack.

Buy this next time Amazon puts in on sale, you won't regret it.

This is an audio collection of "Who's Who" in the blues genre. The songs that the artists were most famous for may not necessarily be included (such as Etta James, "At Last"), but these are all great songs that will give you a taste of the talent that made these singers so famous.

If you're starting to explore the blues, this collection will provide you with a good jumping off point for more in-depth exploring. The most influential people who sang the blues, thus inspiring early rock and roll, are well-represented here. The collection even includes the 1952 version of "Hound Dog" performed by Big Mama Thornton with Kansas Bill and His Orchestra, well before Elvis' 1956 remake performance hit the charts.

From an historical perspective, this is an interesting collection that would be appreciated by most modern music fans.

Love it. Reminds me of Cadillac Records movie. My parents played this music when I was young and I can't get enough of it.

Etta James is just so fluid with her words and melody , as with the rest of the Masters of Blues Playing. this album puts you right there on the street with them from Nashville and Printer's alley to Memphis and Mississippi to Chi town. All back in the DAY!

There are some repeats of ones I already have, but there enough new ones to make up for that. Love the variety!
