Blues Masters: Essential History of Blues [DVD]

This disc contains fifteen performances from some of the legends of blues music. The DVD offers a standard full-frame transfer. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. The soundtrack is less than spectacular, but it is good considering the age of some of the source material. There are neither subtitles nor closed-captions on this release. Although there are no supplemental materials of any consequence, blues enthusiasts will greatly enjoy the performances of "Hoochie Coochie Man", "Pick A Bale O'Cotton", "Hey, Lawdy Mama", and a dozen others. Some of the famous performers appearing on this disc include Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Billie Holiday, and many others.
