Chicago Blues Masters, Vol. 3 is an odd collection, featuring 14 tracks from Shakey Jake, ten cuts from James Cotton (including his inexplicable cover of Todd Rundgren's "Kiddy Boy") and 14 cuts from George Harmonica Smith. There's enough from each artist to constitute a full collection, but these songs are all thrown together without much rhyme or reason. Furthermore, the recordings are latter-day efforts, all of which are interesting, but not necessarily among their best work. Consequently, it's primarily of interest to hardcore fans and collectors the kind of listener who will sift through the mediocre recordings to find the good stuff.
