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
