"This is a magnificently broad collection, as Smithsonian ones usually are. The 4 CD's and 80 tracks run cover a lot of post-war blues: from the retro-acoustic Elzabeth Cotten's "Freight Train" to Taj Mahal's neo-funk-blues "Big Leg Women Are Back in Style Again" to classic Chicago stuff. There are beautiful rare nuggets: "I Wonder" by Cecil Gant being my fave. They hit socially conscious stuff here harder than most blues collections - a big plus. Not as uniform a knock-out as their "The Blues", this set is still quite satisying."
