Hits is a budget-priced collection of Bob Wills' Mercury recordings, including several of his standards ("Bubbles in My Beer," "Faded Love") and a handful of tracks previously unavailable on an American CD ("Thorn in My Heart," "Ida Red," "Little Cowboy Lullaby," "Cotton Patch Blues"). Since it features such an uneven selection, Hits doesn't really live up to its billing, yet it's still a fine mid-priced sampler, designed for casual fans.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other.

Americana, America Through its Roots

The title may sound like a nebulous marketing ploy, and yet for about twenty years, Americana had been summarizing this blend of rock, country, blues and rhythm ‘n’ blues. And like in every big family, you’ll find almost every type of person: the rebellious daughter, the cultivated uncle, the agitated father, the driven cousin, etc.

10 Legends of the Blues
