Synopsis

Amazon.com
This best-of collection from Testament Records is of a very special type, featuring masters of slide guitar, that mainstay of blues music. The buried treasure on this album are several previously unreleased recordings from the legendary Robert Nighthawk, but this CD has plenty of other treats as well. Big Joe Williams contributes several tracks, including "Roll Me Over Slow" and "Walk On Little Girl". Eddie Taylor weighs in with an outstanding acoustic version of "Jackson Town", and there are contributions from Blind Connie Williams, Elijah Brown, and Fred McDowell. And of course, no collection like this could possibly be complete without "Sweet Home Chicago", performed here by Honeyboy Edwards. -- Genevieve Williams
