Ultimate Blues [Decca]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
It's a little all over the map, and not every one of the 41 tracks collected in this set is technically blues, but there are some classic performances here, including B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone," Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line," Muddy Waters' "Rollin' and Tumblin'," Etta James' "I Just Wanna Make Love to You," and the Allman Brothers Band's "Southbound," among others -- on second thought, on the right day and in the right place, anything can be the blues.
