Reviews:

1. AllMusic - Al Campbell
JSP's Masters of Memphis Blues compiles four CDs of performances by Furry Lewis, Stokes & Sane, Gus Cannon as Banjo Joe, Frank Stokes, Allen Shaw, Robert Wilkins, and Little Buddy Doyle. It's hard to go wrong with these 101 recordings cut between 1927 and 1939. The tracks have been remastered, making the majority of this material sound great. Unlike other packages of this type, the liner notes are informative, listing personnel and dates and providing concise histories without going on ad nauseam. As an extra bonus, this is a budget-priced set, making it highly recommended, especially for the blues novice.
