AllMusic Review by

This is an utterly generic compilation of Chicago blues tunes by well-known artists like Muddy Waters, Jimmy Johnson, Jimmy Reed, Sunnyland Slim and Bo Diddley, among others. Other than good sound, there is nothing at all to recommend this set to anyone. The other inexplicable thing -- despite an attempt at it in the sketchy liner notes -- is the inclusion of Richard "King Biscuit Boy" Newell with Ronnie Hawkins.
