Overview

Atlantic continues to trawl through its blues vaults on this generous set featuring many of the music's outstanding and often overlooked vocalists. Taking in some rarities and many updated classics, the 28-track mix includes excellent sides by longtime label star Ruth Brown, vintage blues chanteuse Sippie Wallace, urban blues pioneer Leroy Carr, and the "Poet of the Blues," Percy Mayfield. And while a few other marquee names appear, the bulk is comprised of highlights from such relatively obscure singers as Pearl Woods, Wesley Wilson (doing his version of the Bessie Smith perennial "Give Me a Pigfoot [And a Bottle of Beer]"), and Lou Willie Turner. In the spotlight or not, though, this wide-ranging collection makes for a fine stretch by the stereo.
