Cat No: NOT2CD629


There can be no doubt that the Blues remains an enduring musical force, and if you do your homework you can track it right back to the 19th Century. But it was the later mass migration of African-Americans from the South to the Northern cities of the US that led to an explosion of electric Blues. Throughout these times and changes, the Blues has retained its own identity while assimilating their musical influences, as evidenced by the title of this fine collection of recordings. All over Europe, and back home in the US, the Blues is firmly entrenched as a major genre, and this collection proves just how well rock, funk and soul have merged with it and taken it forward for modern audiences.
