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 ten tracks by Leadbelly, including "John Hardy" and "Goodnight Irene," and 20 from Memphis Slim, including "Sassy Mae," "Strange, Strange Feelin'," and "(I Feel Like) Ballin' the Jack." 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.
