The Blues Band deserves the seal of approval "Extremely valuable". For the British around former Manfred Mann colleague Paul Jones stood and stand for their own variant of the style, similar to Nine Below Zero. Despite all seriousness, fun and "Shake Your Ass" dance factors were unmistakable in almost all of their songs. This excellently arranged retrospective with a total of 41 tracks guarantees a lot of fun. Political ("Maggies's Farm"), drug ("Green Stuff"), dance-legged ("Flatfoot Sam") and witty ("Little Baby") things are presented with swing and a typical blues-band-feeling that gives you a lot of joy. Although some purists demanded more traditional blues from the band in the beginning, they were gradually taught a better lesson by it.
