The principal element running through Blues, Rhythm & Blues and Soul is the emotional truth of the message each song imparts. Sometimes that truth emanates from a specific event, more often it's a comment on the human condition and man's infinite ability to create problems for himself. Blues runs the gamut between happy and sad, Rhythm & Blues adds exuberance and aggression to the mix, while Soul plumbs the throes of exquisite torment, with frequent pleas for heavenly assistance. The tracks gathered here pursue a blues-based musical journey from New Orleans to Chicago via Memphis. With a cast of artists including BB King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker , Jimmy Reed and many more covering a spectrum of blues styles a traveller might encounter on their way. Some perform solo, most have band accompaniment. Some play acoustic instruments, others enliven their efforts with amplification. Some perform in clubs and juke joints, others play theatres and concert halls. Whatever their mode of delivery and wherever they perform, they epitomise the ubiquity of the Blues. Artists featured include BB King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, Dr John etc. in live & studio recordings.
