Comments

promotional copy (for broadcast) with green Mercury label.

Inside The Groove

Songs by Mercury's blues-taste singers, plus other famous blues tunes on such labels as Fury, Fire, Wand et al.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

I don't know why famous blues tunes by artists of other labels are included here... Mercury bought such labels? Or Mercury signed a certain agreement? I don't know...

Anyway, as the title says, all of them are real nice classics, even though some of them are not “Blues” tunes in our current ears. On the other hand, the album itself is now “collectable”.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)
