  • BLUES CHARACTERS, a prestigious new 30-volume collection, invites the listener to discover the work of the great men and women who made blues history; the pioneers of one of the greatest musical adventures of the twentieth century. Released as an 3-panel Digipack, each volume of the collection includes 2 CDs (nearly 2 1/2 hours of listening) and is accompanied by a 36-page booklet containing biographies and notes in French and English, with original photos and illustrations. Blues Characters will make a truly wonderful addition to any blues collection. The first 10 volumes of this authoritative collection are presented here, with 20 further volumes to follow in 2016.

    Muddy Waters is the most emblematic character in the history of blues music. He’s a sort of electrified version of Robert Johnson. When he arrived in Chicago in the spring of 1943, he brought with him the rural blues of the Deep South, which, in his hands and with the city’s simmering energy behind it, lost none of its strength or expressiveness. Music no longer tuned into current fashions; instead, it was the modern world which adapted to the bitter and generous sound of country blues.
