AllMusic Review by

Back before Clapton was declared to be God and Rod to be the Bod and Jimmy Page was still a session player, each was making a name for himself in the fledgling British blues movement. This disc looks at some of the lesser-known projects by these and other players. Clapton is represented by "I'm Your Witchdoctor" (from his Bluesbreaker days), "Draggin' My Tail" (a duet with Jimmy Page), and solo track, "A Tribute to Elmore (James)". The disc also includes cuts by Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart, and Savoy Brown Blues Band. This album really deserves liner notes, but...
