Various Artists - Roots Of Classic Rock: The Blues That Inspired Rock 'N' Roll


This album contains 26 classic blues songs that were covered by the biggest names in Rock & Roll in a beautifully digitally remastered state.

This album contains songs that were covered by Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Cream, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Eric Clapton, and many others. Featuring such renowned artists as Robert Johnson, Big Bill Broonzy, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Memphis Minnie, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Leadbelly, Blind Willie Johnson, and many other Blues Legends, this compilation is sure to be greatly enjoyed by any fan of the Pre-War blues genre or the Classic Rock acts that covered these songs.
