"This neatly packaged box set summarizes the greatness of blues and its gradual transformation from the almost exclusively African American form of musical expression of the Thirties into a broader genre and treasure of the entire American heritage. This so called 'broadening process' has as one of its masterminds Sam Phillips of Sun Studios, who mastered the evolution of blues and hillbilly while fusing into rock'n'roll (see Elvis Presley's early tunes included in this collection). The Sun Studios project featured many of the artists that, beginning in the 1950's, contributed to the evolution of blues, such as Johnny Cash, Rufus Thomas, Little Walter, Doctor Ross, James Cotton, Little Milton and many others. 78 tracks for your aural pleasure."
