Talk about a labour of love. Here, former Rolling Stones bassist and full-time blues aficionado Bill Wyman picks 46 of his favorite classic blues songs (nothing goes past the early 1950s), one track each from some of the most significant blues artists of the past century.

“Wyman, it turns out, has great taste. There are plenty of superb performances from the likes of Bessie Smith, Charlie Patton, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, BB King – the cream of the crop.

All the cuts are in good, remastered sound, clear but with a minimum of hiss, and the extensive notes are written with an eye to the memorable anecdote and the connection between this music and the rock ‘n’ roll that might be more familiar to many listeners. There’s no denying that what is here is some of the greatest American music ever scratched into wax, and this set makes a fine introduction to a proud heritage. “

– Will Meyerhofer (Barnes & Noble)
