Overview

The three-volume Superblues series may not have enough rare/unusual items for the collector, or enough of a solid connecting thread for the more general listener. For those who just want a varied assortment of top-notch blues (mostly from the '50s and '60s) in their collection, though, they're good deals. They cover a pretty wide territory of both top blues stars and lesser-known singers, drawn more from urbane R&B- and jump blues-influenced cuts than most similar compilations. They also have generous playing times, and offer enough liner notes to provide a context for non-experts. Volume one has classics by B.B. King, Ike & Tina Turner, Jimmy Reed, Koko Taylor, Bobby "Blue" Bland, Albert King, Little Milton, Howlin' Wolf, and others.
