Review

Whether or not these 22 songs inspired Jimi Hendrix or not, this would still be a nice collection, and it actually works as a well-sequenced and varied little blues primer, with classic but very different-sounding tracks like Guitar Slim's "The Things That I Used to Do," Richard Berry's "Louie Louie," Son House's "Death Letter," and Robert Johnson's "If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day." The end result is worth checking out even without the Hendrix angle. ~ Steve Leggett
