AllMusic Review by

Oddball budget set of blues by some fairly big names. Kicking off with the original studio recording of B.B. King's "Everyday I Have the Blues," the set also includes sides from Muddy Waters (a live recording of "Rock Me"), Charles Brown, Lightnin' Hopkins, T-Bone Walker, Albert Collins, John Lee Hooker, Roy Brown, and others. The title may be hyperbolic, but as budget sets go, this one's not bad at all.
