Reviews:

1. Folkroots World Music Magazine
18 tracksdrawn from Arhoolie's vaults by such artists as Sam Chatmon, Lightnin' Hopkins, Big Joe Williams (plus some lesser-known talents), all singing "blues with a meaning"‚ songs that reflect the singer's self-expression and personal experience. The booklet has some great photos from Chris Strachwitz and notes by Paul Oliver that place the lyrics into the given context.”
