"One of my favorite blues collections has to be Delmark's Sweet Home Chicago. It sometimes gets lost in the shuffle among a few of the other Chicago blues anthologies, like Alligator's Living Chicago Blues series and Vanguard's Chicago/The Blues/Today! series, but to me, the music is just as good and focuses on some of the movers and shakers of the Windy City's West Side blues scene of the mid to late 60's. Though it's only a little over 30 minutes long, for blues fans it's a well-spent half hour featuring some great early music from several artists who have become legendary as time passed."- Friday Blues Fix blog
