1180CD The Rough Guide To The Blues tells the story of how the blues began, developed and eventually became the roots of rock 'n' roll. From the hardship suffered by black sharecroppers in the Mississippi Delta nearly a hundred years ago, The Blues, a deep soulful music full of passion and rhythm, was born. Featuring a collection of legendary blues heroes recorded throughout the twentieth century. (World Music Network)
