About this release

 

The history and development of the blues is a long story, but if there was a ‘golden era’ is was probably also in the mid to late 1950’s alongside the advent of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

The ten specially selected double AA side 7” singles in this box represent ten of the very biggest and most influential artists of the genre. Over fifty years later it is inevitably impossible to get your hands on mint copies of these great songs on vinyl. Includes Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Lightnin’ Hopkins and BB King

Housed in hard slipcase, the ten 7” singles are ‘dinked’ as juke-box singles and the box includes a ‘spider’ centre for play.

Disc 1 – Muddy Waters
Disc 2 – Howlin Wolf
Disc 3 – John Lee Hooker
Disc 4 – Lightnin’ Hopkins
Disc 5 – BB King
Disc 6 – Willie Dixon
Disc 7 – Buddy Guy
Disc 8 – Elmore James
Disc 9 – Jimmy Reed
Disc 10 – Sonny Boy Williamson
