VA - When Blues Comes Around 2 (18 Interpretations Of Blues 1957-2016)



Blues is such a big genre, it's a very individual term, it is what it is - just a feeling - like a moody figure inside your brain. Artist from the 1920s till today had their own interpretation - that's what I try to create and mediate with this mixtape, NOT to made and satisfy with just another compilation for puritans, chronologists or hysterical collectors (sure the people behind labels like Biograph, Document, JSP, Yazoo, etc made a great job with those cracky 78's, but blues is so much more than just a historical thing). For me, this is what blues about.
