A nice overview of the Blues Company's work can be found in the box in the cardboard slipcase, in which four individual albums of the Osnabrück Blues Institution are collected. So What? (1987) is one of the liveliest records of the men around Todor Todorovic and stands for flawless Chicago blues. To Damn! Let's Jam (1991) has appeared with Luther Allison, Stan Webb and The "Juke" Horns, among others. The focus here was clearly on diversity. Vintage (1995) propagated organic sounds and convinced by the very natural recording with a strong live character. The title The Quiet Side Of The Blues Company (2005) was to be taken seriously, because apart from two numbers only quiet and thoughtful songs were found here. Beautiful box set, but a booklet would have done it good, because that's what customers expect at such and similar retrospectives.
