This box is the 1st of three boxes released by Yellow Dog in 1994, as they cemented their status as one of the most prolific and important Beatleg Labels.
This box contains 4 discs, 2 of which would later be released as single discs; "The Early Years" (re-released as "The Decca Tapes" YD061 in 1995) and "TV Appearances" (re-released as "The Ed Sullivan Shows" YD062 in 1995.) The other 2 discs in this set are unique to this box set.
The sound quality of these discs is truly superb, offering some very important new material to collectors.
The Blues Masters series, much to Rhino`s credit, adopts an expansive definition of blues, allowing the likes of Count Basie, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Muddy Waters and even Louis Prima admission. There is none of the purist`s quibbling over strict 12-bar form or the relative significance of prewar and postwar styles.
What Rhino delivers instead is the blues in all its myriad guises. This music is old and new, black and white, acoustic and electric, folksy and jazzy, performed by women and men, and yet it is all still blues at its core.
