The Best Of Blues Classics 20th Century Masters The Millennium Collection

The Best Of Blues Classics 20th Century Masters The Millennium Collection


2 New & Used Starting at $3.51


There is no doubt that all of the tracks on this collection are indeed blues classics. B.B. King's "The Thrill Is Gone," Muddy Waters' "Got My Mojo Working," and Big Mama Thornton's "Hound Dog" are just three of the signature songs found here. With so many blues anthologies on the market, though, this compilation suffers for its brief length, and for its limited historical scope. If you only have a passing interest in the blues, maybe this album will do, but for anyone who is seriously interested in diving deeper, this one is just too short.
