The Blues

By sleepyjohnfan

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues DVD 7PK:

An Art Cinema in Bristol England showed all the films when they came out. Wonderful to watch with like minded people. Still the best series on the Blues but do look out for Bill Wyman's film and , going back some years, The Devil's Music, a BBC series. I am old enought to have seen Muddy, Wolf and Sleepy John in London. We must be grateful that there is such good film of the music.

Lovely Documentary

By Jimmie Lee

from Wapakoneta, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues DVD 7PK:

I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend for mother's day. She had a copy on vhs but we no longer have a working tape player. She asked for this again because she loved her first copy so much and wanted to watch it again. We both love blues music and watching this set is as exciting as watching it the first time. It gives us something to do together and she watches it as she studies. Our five year old even enjoys the music! Thanks PBS for bringing us something our whole family enjoys! I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in the blues.

Not quite what I expected...

Comments about PBS Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues DVD 7PK:

This was an "okay" film but I expected it to include a broader historical account and less live performances. But I LOVE Willie King!
