Verified Purchase. This collection of four cd's averages about seventy minutes each. The recordings are up to usual JSP standards. To have a collection of these three major artists in one place is fantastic. Both Memphis Slim and Roosevelt Sykes are well-known.
However,the great Eddie Boyd should certainly be as well-known. Memphis Slim is given the most space in this collection,and rightly so. Playing with a group consisting of a rhthym section and a sax or two and the great Matt Murphy on guitar during this stage of his career makes these songs unbeatable. Some of these tunes went on to become staples for the rest of Slim's career.
No matter if the song is fast or slow the "Chicago sound" comes through. Roosevelt Sykes is only given about half of a cd. Several of his songs are variants of some of his songs he has recorded. There is a similar feel of styles between Slim and Sykes,but that is a good thing! Eddie LP is not as well-known as the above two artists because he did not have the chances to record like they did.
Some of you will remember his recordings done in LP with members of Fleetwood Mac. Boyd was not happy with these recordings but at least it gave him a chance to record. The songs on this collection represent his most well-known and important songs-songs he would continue to play for the rest of his life. I advise anyone who is interested in Chicago blues piano to do a little research into all three of these people's music,as you will find more great music by these three and learn more about their styles.
Doing so will reward you with some insight into the times and the lives,and more great music of these real deal bluesmen. This gets off to a slow start, but is well-worth it. The first two CDs are all material with Memphis Slim as band leader. Memphis Slim is probably not as well known today as he deserves to be, but he one of the leading Chicago blues players of the late s and s, Album).

These songs, which he had recorded previously for several independent labels, combine blues and r'n'b with an excellent band. On board was Matt "Guitar" Murphy, who helped defined Slim's classic sound; providing tasteful guitar licks and solos while supporting the ensemble cast of musicians. Sound quality is very good; however, there aren't any liner notes with this package.
This is the disc to get if you only want one Memphis Album) collection in your library. For any fans of the Blues, I would think this is a must. Addendum to my original review: I just noticed this has been reissued with different cover art.
