Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Alfie Falckenbach.

Hell hounds, hell-bound trains, and even Hell and the Devil himself have long been favorite themes for the blues, and consequently for the rock & roll blues-boogie bands that drew on the blues for material and direction. This set proves the point, with devil-themed songs from both camps, including tracks from Canned Heat, Savoy Brown, Otis Spann, Jimmy Reed, Robert Johnson, Skip James, and others, making this collection a bit like an eerie trip down to the crossroads.
