CD Reviews

This CD is loaded with great songs and a great low price.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a very good CD, and I would recommend it to any blues lover, and a lot of rock lovers. There are a few songs on there being performed by people you wouldn't normally expect to perform them. Case and point The Allman Brothers Band doing the Muddy Waters hit, "Hoochie Coochie Man". There's also John Mayall's Blues Breakers (featuring the artist formerly known as God, Eric Clapton). The fact that they even have Savoy Brown is a miracle in itself. They also have speed demon Johnny Winter doing Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Good". Then to top it all off they have a firey ending with Mr. Pat Travers doing Statesboro Blues. Even if you have no idea who Pat Travers is, and have never heard Statesboro Blues I'll tell you right now, I've let everyone from alternitive junkies, to experienced bluesmen listen to that song and everyone loves it. With all these great artists, songs and that low price, you should be ashamed of yourself if you don't buy this CD."
Even my husband loved it!

"I bought this cd on a whim - it was inexpensive and featured some of my favorite artists... rod stewart singing "bring it on home to me/you send me" reminded me why i spent so many years loving the guy! the cd captures some of the best of blues and rock - allmans, clapton, john mayall, robert cray... and then throws some surprises your way - like rod stewart and pat travers, atlanta rhythm section and savoy husband - who's musical tastes are rock centered, but country tempered - and who usually rolls his eyes when i play anything too bluesy or jazzy - really got into this cd......the kids had to endure another lecture on how great the roots of rock really are!"
