Catalogue No: STV1088604
Format: Audio / Video | Recorded Performance
This is a box filled to the brim with performances by some of the most celebrated blues artists of the post war period, including some whose careers stretched back to earlier decades. What you hear—and see on the included DVD—is a kaleidoscope of approaches to this enduring music: songs molded from personal experiences that reflect good as well as bad times, snippets of autobiography and touches of humour.

There were good times to be had in the juke joints of the South and the watering holes of Chicago, an urban environment to which many of these artists gravitated.

Contains songs from: Sonnyboy Williamson, Champion Jack Dupree, Robert Lockwood Jr., Henry Gray, Boogie Bill Webb, Lonnie Johnson, Otis Spann, Speckled Red, Sunnyland Slim, Roosevelt Sykes, Sippie Wallace, Little Brother Montgomery, Big Joe Williams, Sleepy John Estes, Robert Pete Williams, Memphis Slim, Eddie Boyd, Jay McShann, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee and many more …
