Alan Jansen | Boston MA | 10/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Today, October 23, 2005...a drizzly, cold Sunday afternoon in Boston, I brought out this great 2-record vinyl LP from my old 60's-70's collection. As I wiped off the dust and placed it on my turntable, I flashed back to the hundreds of times over a 35-yr period that I've received tremendous pleasure and joy listening and turning my friends on to THE Blues as recorded on this LP. Having stood the classic test of time, it still sounds amazing after all these years...even with the scratches!
I'm thrilled that this album has been re-released as I'm about to order it on CD! A MUST FOR ANY LOVER OF THE BLUES AS WELL AS ANYONE OPEN TO EXPLORING THIS GREAT AMERICAN GENRE FOR THE TIME!"
This is the LP that did it, and did it in a big way...

"After heaing this LP for the first time, nothing was ever the same for me, musically, ever again. From this, I steadily found my way through the blues, and into straight ahead jazz. Hearing James (then 'Jimmy') Cotton's "Rocket 88", or Buddy Guy's rendition of "Money" still makes me shiver. This is a great compilation of some great urban, electric blues, as well as some 'pining' southern influenced rural stuff ( Johnny Young's "Stealin", "Mule Kickin 'In My Stall", "Tobacco Road"). Otis Spann's "Spann's Stomp" and "Twisted Snake" cross deep into the early jazz genre. Marvelous stuff here for real blues lovers."
A must have for any blues fan

"A great compliation of classic electric Chicago Blues. All the performances are top notch from Buddy Guy's "Sweet Little Angel" to Otis Spann's vituosity on the keyboards to the fat full sound of Big Walter Horton this CD is a winner in everyway. A must have!"
