Detroit, Michigan. A northern city - smaller but akin to Chicago - where country southern blacks migrated to find work and found themselves within new urban surroundings. Amongst their numbers were blues musicians who took with them their traditional sounds. It began to develop with a more aggressive feel which grew with them in their new urban life surroundings.

There are 21 different artists here. There is extreme. There are selections of players who encompassed into small combo group recordings to the solo player whose sound without doubt was perfect without any extra accompaniment. There are artists here who made many more commercial recordings than others, who maybe got just one record out. By luck there are some unissued recordings - from unearthed rare acetate discs.

The definitive three album collection of Down Home Blues from Detroit!
