... by a myriad of artists, from Louisiana blues to Chicago blues. Somewhat primitive for some part, but that's okay, that's how this genre started. a great selection.

Pas ben bon. Mélange sans suite, quelques perles mais compilation bâclé de pièces dont les droits sont échus.

This set is absolute crap. Even the better tracks are poor quality. Mostly one person with a harmonica or guitar. No musical value here.

10 hours of truly excellent acoustic blues March 6 2005
By Paul De Ley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In terms of pure listening pleasure this CD set is probably the absolute best value for money currently available for 1930s-60s acoustic blues. It contains 200 classical recordings, dubbed from good to excellent masters, of over 20 vintage blues acts. Most of these are played on acoustic instruments, except for some of John Lee Hooker's earliest (and most brilliant) solo tracks.

Apart from listing the tracks and artists, the set comes with absolutely no documentation, so don't expect to find out anything about the lives and careers of the artists - other than what the songs themselves will tell you. Also, the 10 CDs in this box appear to be completely randomly arranged: none of this was sorted by year, artist, place, theme, style or instrumentation.

The upside to this lack of any overall structure is that the set contains endless variation, contrary to the stylistic uniformity of more typical prewar blues CDs devoted to one single act or artist. Even if you already have an extensive collection of the latter, you'll find this set excellent value for taking to work or bringing along on the road. And if you've just started to get interested in this kind of music, then you'll find no better sampler for exploring the wonderful gems and musical genius of early blues!

diggin' deeper March 31 2008
By Douglas B. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being a musician myself, this is a very enjoyable 10 cd package. An excellent showcase for the forgotten masters that influenced the eras of music that came afterwards. I am very fascinated by the "raw and grit" of the recordings.These CD's are definitely essential for the musicologist. Doug Smith,Co.

Diggin Deeper April 13 2010
By P. Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
An excellent album featuring many blues greats past and present. 10 CDs offers many hours of listening pleasure, a wide variety of styles and genres such as Chicago, New Orleans, Southern, etc.
There were a few tracks on each album that wouldn't play properly. I tried 3 different players (PC, auto and compac disk, all with the same results. I even cleaned each player to maximize results.
Even loosing one or two tracks per CD, this boxed set offers excellent value for the money.

Subset of ABC of the Blues Nov. 25 2012
By Lyn Goodman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great collection, but note that this 10-disc collection is a subset of the 52-disc ABC of the Blues collection. All of the artists in this collection also appear in ABC of the Blues, and the exact same songs are included for each of these artists. Get one or the other, but not both.

A Box Of Joy! March 30 2011
By Stacy Pulliam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Wonderful box full of dozens & dozens of old blues tunes that are hard to find and rarely heard.
Too many people to mention but you will love this little set. 200 songs that I truly cherish and its awesome to have them all in one set. Great price for this as well. Highly recommended item - especially if you prefer the old originals and the folkie stuff. WELL worth it! Buy it!
