Various Artists Sun Records: The Blues Years 1950 — 1956

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 15 February 1986

"The blues is a chair, not a design for a chair, or a better chair… it is the first chair. It is a chair for sitting on, not a chair, for looking at or being appreciated. You sit on that music."

(John Lennon)
