Legendary Blues: Oh Brother -- Best of Southern Blues is a rather skimpy compilation of ten songs by familiar artists of the genre, including Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, and Skip James. Also included are lesser-known tracks by Bessie Tucker ("Penitentiary"), Lucille Hegamin ("Land of Cotton Blues"), and Blind Blake ("Police Dog Blues"). If you stumble across this disc in the bargain bin, pick it up.
