"This collection has one CD each for Clapton, Beck and Page. The Clapton one has the songs he did with Page which is great to hear, but the Beck songs are mostly Yardbirds tracks and instrumentals-I'm not sure where those songs came from. The Jimmy Page disc is basically worthless-some second rate R & B singer with a studio band that apparently Page is playing with. But you sure can't tell who is playing guitar. Some of the tracks are repeated on the different discs so there is no telling who is really is on the track! And, of course, there is absolutely zero information about the tracks listed!"
Confused mish-mosh of three great players

"The repetition of the tracks between discs and the awful sound quality makes this boxed set definitely one to avoid. I had been looking forward to hearing this trio collection but when played, the acoustics and background accompanists were terrible. It was Yardbirds all over again. If I were able, I'd give this set zero stars."
Another truncated compilation

"Although this collection of early Clapton/Page/Beck can still be considered important, it is (like a similar collection on the market, "White Boy Blues" v.1) incomplete. Where "WBB" is missing three Clapton tracks ("West Coast Idea", "Choker", and "Tribute to Elmore"), this collection is missing Beck's "Steelin'" and "Chuckles". Recommendation: get both CDs, or find the out-of-print "White Boy Blues" released in the early 1990s."
