AllMusic Review by

Featuring 20 tracks of vintage modern Chicago blues classics, including Otis Rush’s “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” Jimmy Reed’s “Bright Lights, Big City,” Big Joe Williams’ “Baby, Please Don’t Go,” and yet another searing take of Elmore James’ slide guitar masterpiece “Dust My Broom,” among others, this set makes for an interesting, if just a bit random, introduction to the influential and pervasive Chicago blues genre.
