You can't ignore the sexy packaging that graces the cover of this budget compilation of Blind Pig blues artists. Evidently, it must be difficult to grab the attention of blues fans without this type of eye-catching gimmick. Well. . . .As far as the music goes, White Line Flyers contains 15 decent previously released tracks from Blind Pig Records with an on-the-road theme, including songs ;by Mitch Woods & His Rocket 88's, Jimmy Thackery, Studebaker John and the Hawks, Johnny Shines and Snooky Pryor, Deborah Coleman, John Mooney, Big Bill Morganfield and Taj Mahal, and Chris Cain. Let's hope labels like Blind Pig will stick to signing passionate blues players and releasing budget-priced comps to attract listeners without the need to use sexy promotional campaigns.
