Anthology Of The Blues Vol. 1 - 12

Recordings originally made for the Bihari brothers' Modern label in the 1940s and 1950s were subject to several reissue campaigns throughout the following decades. Kent Records, established by the Biharis after Modern had gone bankrupt, was the most qualified company to take on this task, especially in contrast to the efforts of more cut-rate outfits such as United Superior and Crown. 
So here you have all 12 volumes of 'The Anthology Of The Blues" series originally released in 1969/70 on Kent.... though some of the LP's used are on the United or Musidisc labels.

Legend of Elmore James:
Memphis Blues:
California Blues:
