AllMusic Review by

This single-disc, 31-cut collection features early recordings by Rory Block and Stefan Grossman who, in 1963, were already pretty much blues guitar masters and interpreted the country blues and many of its prewar styles with acumen. Some of it is a bit staid in retrospect, but then these were young people playing very serious music. It was so serious, in fact, that they even got Son House to sing on a couple of cuts. Also included here is an instructional tab booklet and CD-R presentation n how to play the blues guitar by Grossman.
