AllMusic Review by

A similar concept to Prestige Soul Masterpieces, this has a view toward highlighting the blues artists available on the OBC label. Fifteen tracks are here, including Memphis Slim's "Mean Mistreatin' Mama," and King Curtis's "Trouble in Mind," Pink Anderson's "I've Got Mine," Blind Willie McTell's "The Dyin' Crapshooter's Blues," Lightnin' Hopkins's "Wake Up, Old Lady," and Reverend Gary Davis's "Say No to the Devil."
