When Allen Lowe’s previous CD documentary, Minstrel to Mojo [American Pop] was released, it was acclaimed as one of the ten best boxed sets of the year by The New York Times and as the best independent production of the year in Pulse! magazine. Gary Giddins wrote in the U.S. magazine Modern Maturity (circulation: 23 million): “This astonishing trove of 215 selections lives up to its title . . . the sheer variety is overwhelming.

“There can be few better guides to the varied, fascinating, and vastly influential music of the United States than this.” 
J
ohn Clarke - The Times [London]

“There has never been such a fascinating collection of reissued vintage records ... nor one that gives such an overview of American popular song ...” 
 
Philip Elwood - San Francisco Examiner
 

“No one has ever attempted anything like this before . . . these are the streams and tributaries that have fed the river of American music in this century, and it is an amazing experience to sit back and listen to them as they flow together.” 
 
Elijah Wood - The Boston Globe
 

“With at least twenty-four numbers to a disc, Really the Blues? is a cornucopia; it’s a swamp. It’s a forest to get lost in, tree by tree or even leaf by leaf. It’s a grand and overarching story—though that ? at the end of his title marks Lowe’s doubt as to whether with the blues such a story is possible, or even a good idea.” 
 
Greil Marcus -  Believer Magazine

 “What glorious music this country produced in the 20th century!” 

 
Bob Rusch  - Cadence
