AllMusic Review by

The Music Brokers box set Blues: Definitive Collection does a fair job of introducing some of the best-known blues musicians of the 20th century, with ample space given to the masters of the genre including Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, and B.B. King. Also included are great cuts by Ike Turner, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Jimi Hendrix, Canned Heat, and Tommy Tucker. This 90-track, six-CD box set is a decent first purchase for anyone just finding out about this timeless form of American music.
