Bizarre packaging aside, Legendary Blues: Acoustic Blues is a rather skimpy compilation of ten songs by familiar artists of the genre, including Robert Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee. Also included are lesser-known tracks by Sleepy John Estes ("Someday Baby"), Big Joe Williams ("Brother James"), and Bo Carter ("All Around Man"). If you stumble across this disc in the bargain, bin pick it up.
