Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Every Day I Have the Blues is a thumbnail sketch of the blues, beginning at the point where it went urban and electric.

The sequence is a bit baffling, however, with Elmore James' classic "Dust My Broom" bumping up against Jeff Healey's version of a John Hiatt tune, "Confidence Man," and perhaps the history lesson would have made a lot more sense here if the songs had been arranged chronologically. Can't fault the tune selection, but with 15 tracks, this is far too short to be anything but a drive-by glimpse of modern blues.
