A superb new 4CD box set, titled 100 Years of the Blues, has been released to celebrate the centenary of Robert Johnson’s birth, and also to mark the 60th anniversary of Muddy Waters’ first recording sessions on Stovall’s Cotton Plantation in Mississippi.

The set comprises 91 tracks and traces the story of the blues from the early 20th century right up to the present day.

It comes with a 126-page book and detailed liner notes that describe each stage in the evolution of the blues.

Each CD covers a different era of the blues: Pre War Blues, Urban Blues, The Sixties and Modern Day Blues.
