AllMusic Review by

The four-disc set Blues Summit includes two separately released blues LPs, plus a compilation (of sorts) and a bonus disc. The first two, Collaboration by Muddy Waters & Otis Spann, and Buddy Guy & Junior Wells Play the Blues, are by no means the best by each performer, but are definitely capable of introducing listeners to the best of Chicago blues. The third includes a smattering of tracks by Little Walter and Otis Rush. The result is quite a hackneyed, confusing affair; not that it's filled with bad music, but this box isn't the best introduction for someone wishing to learn more.
