While this meeting of blues greats should be an important document, the sad fact is that the group sounds unrehearsed and past their prime. While some tunes, such as "43rd Street Jump" and "Freedom Train" have some real drive and feeling, much of the material is sloppy at best. The one thing that stands out on the album is the vocals, with each of these giants taking lead on several tracks. The variety of styles in their blues singing is a treat.
