Stax was almost exclusively devoted to soul; after all, the Memphis-based label was referred to as Soulsville U.S.A. But they did have their share of blues artists on their roster, as this collection highlights. Among the 18 tracks are familiar favorites, including Albert King ("Blues Power"), John Lee Hooker ("Please Don't Go"), Little Milton ("That's What Love Will Make You Do"), and Gus Cannon ("Walk Right In"), with lesser-known tracks from Steve Cropper ("Oh, Pretty Woman"), Ruby Johnson ("Weak Spot"), and Joe Hicks ("Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out"). We'll Play the Blues for You is an excellent sampler made even better by its 2004 remastering. ~ Al Campbell
