On most of the "various artist" CD's, you find songs that you already have in your collection. This CD is different, it has music being performed by known artists, but the song selection is usually different than what you already have in your colletion. I highly recommend this CD as a strong addition to what you already own. If you are new to the blues, this would be an excellent start to an excellent collection.
Red Blooded Comments on Real Blues

""The Blues are the Facts of Life and the Roots of all American Music." --Willie Dixon
A must have album! I'll talk about the music in two minutes. This is a collector's item and the proceeds goes to saving lives.
This 17-Track CD covers the Blues of every type. In Fact, The Blues Community put together this album under the direction of the "Blues Heaven Foundation." This covers all the genres of blues. All 17 of these top Blues artists have donated their royalties (of this album) to the American Liver Foundation with the Blues Heaven Foundation for their project "Get HIP to Hepatitis." About 5 million Americans are infected with Hepatitis and Billions World-Wide. Your purchase will aid in research and in education of the public about a major killer.

We start with BB (the king) in "I'm Moving on" (Track 12) which is one of his better songs. How can you go wrong with a song written by C. Santana / J.L. Hooker called "Chill Out (Things Gonna Change)" and the vocal by John Lee Hooker. Etta James tells it like it is in "Whatever Get You Through The Night." An old J.J. Cale tune "Sensitive Kind" is performed by none other than a 35-year blue veteran John Mayall. Last but no the least (track 17), "It Don't Make Sense (You Can't Make Peace)" written and performed by Willie Dixon backed by "The Chicago Blues All-stars." Oh, Did I forget that (Track 6) the Title song is "Red Blooded Blues" written for this album by Joe Louis Walker and Tony Sanders (two old time blues artists) and they preformed it on this album.
Pops Staples, Joe Cocker, Lucky Peterson, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, and Joan Osborne donated their best song for this collectors keepsake.
Here is the hooker! I did not list all 17 track. I'll bet you will loved the songs not listed as well."
