Description
The vitality and emotional power of the blues have made this music timeless, as proven by the 22 tracks on this overview of America's most influential musical genre. Beginning with such exponents of primal Delta blues as Robert Johnson ("Crossroad Blues"), Charley Patton ("Pony Blues"), and John Lee Hooker ("Boom Boom"), this musical trek travels north to Chicago with Muddy Waters ("Mannish Boy") and Howlin' Wolf ("Come Back Home"). Other standouts include Memphis Minnie's "Me and My Chauffeur Blues," Elmore James's "It Hurts Me Too," Ali Farka Touré's "Erdi," and a live recording of B.B. King's "Ain't Nobody Home." The liner notes include a short history of the blues and capsule biographies of the performers.
