U.S. roots music legend Geoff Muldaur called and everyone came to join him: Stephen Bruton, Johnny Nicholas, Cindy Cashdollar, Suzy Thompson, Bruce Hughes and special guest Jim Kweskin, jugband music man extraordinaire. Reflecting the golden era of traditional American music, the Austin 'Texas Sheiks' sessions turned into a unique and moving event. Irresistible and obscure pieces of classic blues, string band, Texas swing and jump blues repertoire, sung and played with masterful expertise, great authority and captivating joy.
The Texas Sheiks' record is Traditional American Music of extremely high caliber. I think of it as modernist classical music. --T-Bone Burnett

Others sound too much like they were trying to recreate the not-so-great sound quality of early blues records through odd voicing. I am sure that these have some "authentic" blues values, but I just found them jarring (especially "Cairo").
If you are really into the blues, you may enjoy this one more than I did, although I did flag 5 of the songs as worth being in my "5-star" song rotation I play when working in my home office.
