Most of the pioneers and legends may be gone, but Rhino’s new “Blues Fest” series proves recent years have been blessed with a plethora of quality blues music. Each of the three CDs spotlights a different decade (1970s-1990s) and includes thoughtful liner notes. Albert King, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Buddy Guy are among those featured. A perfect Xmas gift for that blues fan on your list.
