During the 1960s the UK was the location for a vibrant social revolution. The post-war traditional jazz and folk revival movement sowed the seeds - in fertile musical ground - for the roots of a new kind of blues music, entirely influenced by the authentic black blues of the USA. The British musicians at the heart of this musical revolution continued to pay homage to the originators of the music and to make a huge global audience aware of the likes of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Freddie King and others.

Figgis says, "I'm interested in why there was such excitement about this black music among Europeans. To that end, I've put together a group of these musicians, augmenting the line-up with some younger talent as well. Hopefully the resulting recording session of some blues standards, and the discussions that follow, shine some light on why at a particular moment the blues was reinterpreted abroad and reintroduced in a new form that was universally embraced."
