"One of the most important releases of the last few decades..." -- Mark Fisher, Times-West Virginian.
A great deal has already been written about this outstanding set of three CDs, drawn from tapes of concerts by the Barber Band and the blues artists listed above, so little needs to be repeated here. For more detail, you can read about (and buy) the CDs at the Official Blues Legacy site, while there is also a Blues Legacy page here in the Chris Barber website.
For reviews and other press materials you can check out a Blues In Britain article, “The Demon Barber of British Blues” from Record Collector magazine, “On the slide since 1949" (Mature Times), a 5-star review from Record Collector, and an article in Dutch from Block magazine. Elsewhere on the web, Jim White of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has written a fine and knowledgeable review, there is a similar laudatory review from the Times-West Virginian, and you can see a promotional video on YouTube.
