Overview

Men of Blues [Northquest]

This is a curious and interesting budget-priced two-disc compilation of historical blues and jazzmen. And therein lies the beauty and the question: this set, spanning only 20 cuts over two discs, places the great jazz talents of the early era -- Louis Armstrong, Jazz Gillum, and Hot Lips Page -- in the same company as Charles Brown, Lightnin' Hopkins, Peetie Wheatstraw, and Barbecue Bob. What it reveals is the magical ability of the blues to translate across genres. This set is so strange it is worth picking up because of its rather hodgepodge focus. The sound is acceptable and the price is most certainly right.
