jacksonville, fla. | 11/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tah Mahal is one of the best blues legends of all time. His vocals, blues harp, and guitar are the quintesessial of all blues players. I have been listening to him from 1970 the songs never get old. I hope he gets the recognition he richly deserves while he is still on the planet!"
Some great tracks.

"Some of the songs on this disc are absolutely fabulous, others are not quite as good. The first three (Leaving Trunk, She Caught the Katy and Fishing Blues) are huge. So's Chevrolet. Cakewalk is pretty good too. The others, however, are not what I look for when buying a blues album. In my mind this album's a mixed bag, as far as blues go. But the 4 or 5 standout tracks are definitely worth owning."
Delta blues sung by one of the greats

"I discovered Taj Mahal in 1969 via The Natch'l Blues and have been enthralled ever since. Taj has a voice that resonates with velvet, honey and pain. The songs are a fairly good selection from his first five or six albums.Most are not originals, but old blues standards. One has a reggae flair, which fits in nicely, not jarring, as you might imagine. Leaving Trunk has been covered by most blues revival groups and is a fitting entry into this wonderful selection of very accessible Delta Blues. One small quibble: Gorgeous songs such as The Cuckoo and Corinna should have been included... but then, I'm sure, this would have ended being a double CD."
