I bought the CD of this series with Keb Mo. I'm not that big of a blues fan, but this CD is wonderful.

Absolutely one of the best series on the blues, ever.
As I get older, I have come to appreciate how well those original albums were recorded. For example, a lost classic for me is Big Bill Broonzy. He recorded a three disc set right before he died in 1958 that was titled "The Big Bill Broonzy Story". The soundstage on this album rivals anything in my collection and the vocals and guitar playing is uniformly brilliant. I play it once a week. I also love Elmore James, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Son House.
I especially loved the "Warming By The Devils Fire" episode within the PBS/MS Blues Series, which had a deep set of blues running through the background story.
Thanks for the post.
