3Buyer beware.Jun 07, 2011
By Vincent
No doubt, this excellent compilation of well-known and relatively obscure blues artists will please anyone who does NOT own the original vinyl box set of four albums. Liner notes, compilation style, audio, all rate five stars. So, why only three? The vinyl collection contained 103 tracks. The cd collection has 83. Now, 20 tracks gone is NOT an insignificant deletion. Bad job on this editing. Each of the four cds is close to the 80-minute cap, so we're not short-changed on time. What should have been done is to keep all 20 tracks by adding another cd, looping the sections, so that the buyer would get the depth and expanse of the original vinyl set. So, if you never owned the records and can't get your hands on it, this abridged version will be great. If you already have the 103 songs on vinyl, you'll be very disappointed at the cutbacks here.

5The Blues Ain't Killing Me, but Living IsNov 21, 2013
By Axis, Bold As Love
This is an old collection of old music. It gets 5 stars for the fact that this project was a great idea for showcasing Blues genres and performers on a label not specifically known as a blues label. That this project could also make some money for the label on catalog material was another plus for the accountants.

This purchase was 4 used yet pristine CDs in perfect jewel cases with a mint full-size essay booklet in a gently used 12x12 box. The kicker is the total box cost only $10.00 on my Prime account and arrived on my doorstep within two days. Thank the Hammer of the Gods for the used CD market on Amazon. The deals are there and your diligence will be rewarded.

5Great mix of blues!Oct 02, 2013
By Nancy R Eichelberger
This is a near-perfect mix of traditional and contemporary Blues. You can listen to this CD over and over and not get tired of it.

5A killer overview of Atlantic Records classic blues artists...Apr 07, 2013
By Merv Throneberry "Bob"
I noticed one 3 star review of this set and wanted to set the record straight...yes there are 20 less tracks
than on the vinyl version but I never knew there WAS a vinyl version in the first place.

Twenty years ago I gave up on modern music and decided to dive into real blues. I opened a Columbia House Record
Club account with a CD order of nothing but the work of classic blues artists...Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Willie Dixon and others you would expect. And this box set. This box is separated into 4 categories by CD: Guitar, Piano, Vocalists and Chicago. The assortment is staggering...contains tracks by all of these must-hear artists: John Lee Hooker, the Kings (BB, Freddie and Albert) on the Guitar ad Chicago CDs, as well as Buddy Guy & Junior Wells, Otis Rush, Koko Taylor...on the Piano CD you get "Champion" Jack Dupree, Big Joe Turner, Dr. John AND Professor Longhair AND Ray Charles. Throw in tracks by T-Bone Walker, Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, Blind Willie McTell, Guitar Slim, Ike & Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Ray Vaughan...this is a great box set to start or finish with. Fave sleeper tracks: Johnny Shines version of "Dust My Broom" and Bobby "Blue" Bland's "Ain't That Lovin' You". I strongly recommend this.
