AllMusic Review by

Although hardly an essential collection, this set has great restored sound and features a cool mix of early country blues releases, including Robert Johnson's "Stop Breakin' Down Blues," Blind Lemon Jefferson's "Black Snake Moan," Bukka White's "Fixin' to Die Blues," Leroy Carr's "Blues Before Sunrise," and Peetie Wheatstraw's "These Times," along with some less familiar fare. Eclectic and varied, it makes a nice first introduction to the acoustic blues of the 1920s and 1930s.
