A 2-disc, 38 song collection of the Chicago-based blues label Alligator Records' artists, released to commemorate their 40th anniversary. I confess I don't have much interest in modern blues, so this isn't really for me. It does offer a wide range of artists, including Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Koko Taylor, Professor Longhair, Hound Dog Taylor (my favorite), and Mavis Staples.
