Most of the songs on Rebound's Roots of Rock: Blues Rock don't even date from the glory days of blues-rock -- the late '60s, when it was all starting to come together. This has some moments from that era and from the early '70s, when it was flourishing, but there's too much from the '80s for this to truly be a "roots" disc. (It also has Pat Travers' "Statesboro Blues" instead of the Allmans'.) Even with such flaws, it's a fairly enjoyable disc, since it contains strong cuts from John Mayall, Robert Cray, Roy Buchanan, Savoy Brown, Johnny Winter, Rod Stewart and the Allmans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
