Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.70) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he icons and belters on this two-CD party include guitar lords like Albert Collins, Son Seals and Luther Allison; vocal volcanoes Koko Taylor and the Holmes Brothers; and the modern-Delta stylist Corey Harris."

Living Blues (p.66) - "Perhaps one of the Alligator's greatest triumphs, and undoubtedly one of its paramount voices, was the late Koko Taylor. The Queen of the Blues recorded with the label for 35 years..."

Billboard (p.40) - "[A] sampler that touches on great moments and key acts....Sure to send listeners deeper into the individual artists' catalogs."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.103) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[With] healthy doses of blues-infused rockabilly, front porch soul, gospel, rock, ballads, New Orleans R&B, country and zydeco."
