- Acoustic blues recordings, a total of 40 tracks, carefully re-mastered from the original masters.
- 112-page booklet with rare photos and in-depth liner notes and bios.

Any concern that interest in acoustic blues guitar would recede in the face of the loss of many of its leading figures and so much electric blues and blues-rock was permanently put to rest by a new legion of disciples and the discovery of yet more older musicians that somehow eluded discovery during the postwar era (and in a few notable cases, pre-war days). Certified legends Robert Lockwood, Jr., Henry Townsend, and Sam Chatmon were happily still in business.
Younger 60s/70s discoveries Taj Mahal, John Hammond, Geoff Muldaur, David Bromberg, and Bonnie Raitt were now joined by the next generation of acoustic pickers, who brought fresh ideas to the table along with a deeply ingrained sense of tradition. As the blues underwent a major resurgence during the 80s and 90s with the genre finding its way into advertising campaigns and mainstream films such as Crossroads, young acoustic players with exciting new ideas emerged. In the cases of Keb Mo and Alvin Youngblood Hart, their debut CDs were released on a major label, underscoring the genres renewed commercial potential. Corey Harris was every bit their artistic equal, albeit without major label backing.
The acoustic movement remains very much alive today, thanks to a constant infusion of new blood and established visionaries such as Otis Taylor dedicated to escorting the approach into uncharted waters. Let there be no doubt: acoustic blues as we have traced it over the course of this eight-disc series wont go anywhere anytime soon.

Acoustic Blues, The Definte Collection
The Roots Of It All
In addition to this standard work, blues researcher Bill Dahl now has the history of acoustic blues. From the commercial beginnings in the early 1920s to the present day. Beyond the boundaries of the catalogues of individual record companies, Bear Family presents the most important recordings on four double CDs in chronological order.
Carefully mastered partly from original shellac plates and later from the best analog and digital sources. The accompanying books, each with about 80 pages, provide extensive liner notes, wonderful illustrations and often rare photos and thoroughly researched discographic information.
From the beginnings in the 1920s
This series documents the fascinating history of the acoustic blues guitar from its beginnings in the 1920s and 1930s.
When the recording industry, still in its infancy, made extensive recordings with blues musicians from the South (often in hectic temporary recording studios in hotel rooms and other acoustically acceptable locations), to the present day.
Revival of Country Blues
Each of the double CDs in this series covers a specific era of blues played on acoustic instruments.
