Bob Harris Compilations...

Bob Harris Presents...

Blues music was an essential and dynamic element in the alchemic ‘Whistle Test’ music mix.

The show featured fantastic archive films of the some of the legendary R &B and Blues players...musicians who created the template for Rock ‘N’ Roll and influenced the generations that followed.

Many of the great names played live on the show. Freddie King tore into ‘Going Down’ with an awesome intensity. Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, B B King and Alexis Korner all played searing sets and the wonderful and much-loved Rory Gallagher as good as took up residency in the ‘Whistle Test’ studio.

What ‘Whistle Test’ couldn’t feature live, it played off vinyl. And as the programme progressed through its sixteen year run, it embraced new, emerging heroes, such as Ry Cooder, Robert Cray and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

This collection features tracks by many of these ‘Whistle Test’ favourites, alongside musicians who have taken the Blues to a new place...the multi-Grammy awarded Kenny Wayne Shepherd and the late, great and ground-breaking R. L. Burnside.


As Seasick Steve would’s ALL good!
