  2. Cream of The Crate: Album # 199 - Lightning Hopkins: The Gold Star Series Vol 1

    "The blues is born with you. When you born in this world, you were born with the blues. (Lightnin’ Hopkins, 1967)
    "
    Sam (Lightnin') Hopkins, one of the great country blues singers and perhaps the greatest single influence on rock guitar players." (New York Times Obituary, Feb 1, 1982 )
    "These are not necessarily the best known Lightnin' Hopkins tracks, but in many ways that makes this CD even more valuable."

  3. Cream of The Crate: Album # 198 - John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band

    "The reality of Plastic Ono Band is that it contains eleven of Lennon’s most accessible and gorgeous melodies and riffs." (Gerry Mullholand - BBC review 2010)
    "An album that will be as much analysed as Sgt. Pepper over the years." (Billboard - 1971)
    "
    It remains one of the most audacious, iconoclastic albums in all of rock and roll." (Guitar World 2016)
    "
    The album certainly shows that he had yet to work through many unresolved matters, and that he still had much anger in him. However he was a brilliant man and knew how to channel these elements in such a way to create some brilliant, memorable and haunting tracks." (This review)

  5. Cream of The Crate: Album # 196 - Ma Rainey: Ma Rainey

    "Her deep, almost-vibratoless contralto sounded rough and unsophisticated compared to other commercial blueswomen but she projected a great depth of feeling and was adored by audiences." (US Library of Congress
    "Ma Rainey was one of the first singers to popularize the style (the blues)." (Joe McGasko - Bio May 2015)
    "
    When we listen to Ma Rainey, the recordings are very crude, but even so the power and mesmerism of her voice shows that pure talent and commitment to an audience makes Ma Rainey stand out even more today.

  6. Cream of The Crate: Album # 195 - Rob E. G. : All His Hits [The Festival File Volume 3]

    "Robbie played lap steel guitar, an axe with a real twangy sound." (Colin Talbot - 100 Greatest Australian Singles Of The Sixties)
    "Rob E. G. was, by any criterion, a curious sensation."
    (Glenn A. Baker - album liner notes)
    "Rob E. G.'s flame may have only burnt brightly for a relatively short time, but when it really burned it was scorching, and, it has never actually gone out!"

  7. Cream of The Crate: Album # 194 - Sleepy John Estes: Jailhouse Blues

    "Pure gold is twenty-four karat, a pure alcoholic drink is 200-proof, and pure blues is that of John Adam “Sleepy John” Estes." (Blues Blast Magazine - August 2014)
    "His high-pitched inflections and relaxed phrasing is irresistible."
    (All About Jazz - October 2008)
    "
    Blues by nature is the story of pain,suffering, and occasionally a triumph, so is therefore by nature, emotional. John Estes took it too another level in regard to that emotion." (This review)

    "Rubber Soul was an indication of the ways things were going to go - it's one of my favourite albums. I think it's a great album." (George Martin)
    "Our whole attitude was changing - we'd grown up a little. I think grass was really influential in a lot of our changes, especially with the writers." (Ringo)

    "Dion was the original punk." (RollingStone - March 1973)
