Discovering the Blues is culled from a series of concerts Robben Ford gave in the early '70s at Huntington Beach's Golden Bear and Ash Grove in Hollywood. At the time, Ford was just beginning his career, and his style wasn't nearly as accomplished as it would later be. Instead, he simply burns, tearing through blues classics with a passion and vigor -- there is a joy of discovery in his playing which makes the music nearly transcendent, even with its flaws. Discovering the Blues is rawer than most records in Ford's catalog, but any serious fan will find it a necessary addition to their collection. ~ Thom Owens
