Editorial Reviews

(3 CD-digipac with 172-page booklet) Blues historian and musicologist Bill Dahl from Chicago has produced the most comprehensive history of electric blues ever! With nearly 300 tracks, BEAR FAMILY RECORDS is telling the story from the beginning into the new millennium. Every significant artist... every significant recording from the 1930s to the present day, including T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, George Thorogood, and Freddie, B.B. and Albert King, Jeff Beck, Fleetwood Mac, Charlie Musselwhite, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and literally hundreds more! Cross-licensed from every record company to be truly comprehensive!

In the 1930s, the invention of Gibson's ES-150 - the first electric guitar - changed popular music forever. The first generation of blues pioneers played acoustic instruments, but with the invention of amplification, guitar and harmonica players could be heard over the piano, drums and horns. Music was revolutionized!

This is one of four 3-CD sets in elegant deluxe digipacs. All four sets combined add up to 12 generously full CDs plus more than 650 pages in four lavishly illustrated booklets, in which Bill Dahl writes authoritatively about the history of electric blues, and how it influenced rock music during the 1960s and beyond. Here's the complete story from jazz-inspired jump numbers in the late 1930s to hard-driving blues/rock from the States and Great Britain in the 1960s, '70s, and beyond. The journey closes with today's contemporary blues. This is it! Truly definitive! Done as only BEAR FAMILY can do it!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I own 10,000 CDs at least half or more are blues and jazz- Bear family here pulls in not only the best of the best but some lessor known classics, that as an old DJ I used to work hard to find to put in a set. I must have every major Blues compilation ever done on CD or Vinyl since the 60s and if I would compile my favorites into 3 CDs this would he it-period I own- thousands of Blues albums-like the fantastic Bear Family Blowing the Fuse a 16 CD essential set , and the soul set,that followed this is a compilation, that has rarities with the best sound ever, and a booklet that for me is worth the price alone. It is guitar heavy and if I have a complaint it leaves out the wonderful contribution of pianists, as well as Blues and soul shouters and R&B, however this is not billed as an R&B set it is mostly a guitar player compilation, however if you love old R&B, and old time blues and rough and tough rock in roll roots music you will LOVE this no kidding- this is essential and my favorite of the 4 volumes- INCREDIBLE!!!!! This can stay on the turntable all day 3 killer CDs with the best of the best including personal favorites that never show up on compilations.Rock on Bear Family you always seal the deal, never a bad disk from them, research, notes and sound quality are the very best you can get - this is um SO worth the price.... these go out of print so jump on this my blues brothers and sisters!!
