Why is the blues such an enduring strand of popular music? Eric Clapton simply called it 'a very powerful drug...I absorbed it totally, and it changed my complete outlook.' The 32 tracks in this collection are an enjoyable history lesson. With tracks such as "I Put A Spell On You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins or Otis Rush's "I Can't Quit You Baby", this compilation demonstrates why this genre, that evolved out of African-American work songs, became the foundation of virtually every mayor American music form of the 20th century.
