Savoy Blues 1944-1994

The Blues are always in style and, as Ray Charles has said, everybody understand the Blues. Here is a fifty year overview of the genre, covering every category, from the down home, gutbucket blues of John Lee Hooker and Brownie McGhee, to the jumping horn driven urban blues of Big Joe Turner and Gatemouth Moore, to the smooth stylings of Billy Eckstine and Charles Brown.
