This is in essence blues songs played as rock songs by blues rock musicians. It is much better than the horrible "Blues Authority" stuff (which is blues songs played by METAL musicians). Although not a "pure blues" album, the playing reflects the richness achieved by using traditional guitar, amp and other sound techniques. What it is is an anthology of new recordings within the "British blues tradition".

There are some fine acoustic recordings within the 4 CDs in the series (Big Joe Williams/Maggie Bell and Peter Green and Nigel Watson, for instance and a fantastic solo acoustic rendition of "Don't let me be misunderstood" - see the "British" blues connection?). There is also a previously released version of Red House by J. L. Hooker which is good - the fact that "Red House" is included should tell you all you need to know about the "rock" orientation of the set. Having criticized the set, I must say I really do like it. Any set which includes the likes of Jack Bruce, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Mick Taylor and Mick Abrahams is worth purchasing. Just keep in mind that it is a collection of blues by mostly British blues rockers. As for the "Americans", Harvey Mandel and Harvey Brooks are featured (the latter made my ears stand up for a listen). (Samuel B. King)
