Big Box of Blues [Floating World]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
With 166 tracks spread over six discs, this budget box set is a great way to get a whole lot of modern blues tracks for very little expense. The set list is somewhat random, but the variety is impressive, and there are plenty of classics here, including Howlin' Wolf's "Smoke Stack Lightning," Otis Rush's "Can't Quit You Baby," Bobby Charles' "See You Later Alligator," Brownie McGhee's "Death of Blind Boy Fuller," Elmore James' "Dust My Broom," Clarence "Frogman" Henry's "Ain't Got No Home," Jimmy Reed's "Ain't That Loving You Baby," and Slim Harpo's "I'm a King Bee," among many others.
