AllMusic Review by

Dressed to Kill's Blues Twinpack series are uneven at best, with sound quality and performances running between fair and horrendous. This double disc features 12 tracks by Lightnin' Hopkins, including "My Baby's Gone" and "Lightnin' Boogie," and 21 from Mississippi John Hurt, including "Casey Jones," "Make Me a Pallet on the Floor," and "Salty Dog." Since both artists have been the subject of many greatest-hits compilations, this is definitely not the best way to acquire material by these icons.
