3.19.12 Blues Medley

One of my favorite early Blues album compilations!

Which brings me to a point: Compilations are one of the best types of albums. Whether by a "Best of" compilation or a genre compilation you really get a good set of songs from people who have made music collection and production their profession. I know for my show, I've had so much help from musical scholars who have compiled a well-thought out and cohesive set of songs by various artists. Also, you get the biggest bang for your buck!
