Jazz Collection: Masters of the Blues Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Delta's 2002 release Masters of the Blues pairs a disc of early Clapton sides that have been recycled endlessly -- live Yardbirds plus selections from the 1965 jam session credited to the Immediate All-Stars (featuring Clapton, Jimmy Page, Bill Wyman, Ian Stewart, and Mick Jagger) -- and a disc of B.B. King recordings, sometimes seeming to be re-recordings. This should not be seen as capturing either blues master at his best -- in fact, this isn't much more than a ripoff.
