Filed under: Uncategorized THE BLUES is a three-disc set, the first two of which reissue the lost soundtrack to the 1976 BBC show of the same name, and the third disc of which presents a live blues concert from 1963.Indigo’s three-CD set Blowing the Blues perfectly fits the bill for someone just becoming acquainted with the expressive and versatile use of the harmonica in both acoustic and electric settings. It’s hard to go wrong with these 71 tracks highlighting all the major changes in the genre recorded between 1926 and 2002. While not intended for the die-hard blues aficionado, who more than likely already owns the majority of this material, Blowing the Blues is nevertheless a highly recommended set that includes everyone from Jaybird Coleman and the Memphis Jug Band to Paul deLay and Paul Lamb. ~ Al Campbell, Allmusic
