AllMusic Review by

Delmark's jazz anthology deserves praise despite the fundamental problems inherent within the sampler concept; the same holds true for its blues collection. This is a good 19-cut retrospective item containing exceptional cuts by Robert Jr. Lockwood, Otis Rush, J.B. Hutto, Roosevelt Sykes and Magic Sam, plus nice ones from Jimmy Johnson, Arthur Crudup, Yank Rachell and Big Joe Williams. But no Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson?
