"Home of the Blues is a compilation of some contemporary blues artist like Jonny Lang, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray and B.B. King combined with some legendary figures like Howlin' Wolf, Slim Harpo, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. All but two of the songs, Jonny Lang's version of "Good Morning Little School Girl" and Robert Cray's own "I Was Warned" were originally recorded by the artist 30 to 40 years ago and have been remastered. With regard to the sound quality, the remastered originals sound about as good as can be expected considering most were originally recorded in mono. From a historical perspective, one may question why Jonny Lang is included at all in place of the Sonny Boy Williamson original. I suppose it has to do more with trying to lure a younger crowd to purchase the disc than anything else. Overall, not a bad compilation but also not the best I have heard."
