Review

Are these the 50 most influential blues songs of the 20th century? Lists like that are capable of being never-ending and ever-debated, but everything collected here really is seminal. From early country blues classics like Robert Johnson's “Crossroads” and Skip James' “I’m So Glad” through Jimmy Reed's “Ain’t That Loving You Baby,” Bo Diddley's “Pretty Thing,” and Chuck Berry's “Johnny B. Goode” and other songs from the point where the electric blues melted into the very foundation of rock & roll, this two-disc, 50-track anthology makes its point well. These are truly indispensable songs and recordings. ~ Steve Leggett
