AllMusic Review by

Midnight Blues delivers just what the title promises: a collection of some of the blues' most memorable songs and artists, including Lightnin' Hopkins' "Lonesome Dog Blues," Leadbelly's "Goodnight Irene," Memphis Slim's "Cold Blooded Woman," and B.B. King's "Catfish Blues." Big Joe Williams' "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out," Charles Brown's "Trouble Blues," and Buddy Guy's "Buddy's Blues" are among the other highlights of this decent blues overview.
