Format: Audio CD
Eli Toscano founded the Cobra label in 1956. The label was important for launching the recording careers of Chicago blues artists Otis Rush, Magic Sam and Buddy Guy and signalled the arrival of a new generation of blues artists and a new sound to be called and known as the West Side Sound. First to record for Cobra was Otis Rush. His single "I Can't Quit You Baby" CD1/16 became a hit, spending six weeks in the Billboard R&B chart, where it reached number 6 in 1956.Rush recorded another seven singles for Cobra often described as defining moments of Chicago blues. In 1957 Magic Sam recorded his signature song "All Your Love" CD2/14 and released four singles on Cobra. Buddy Guy released two singles in 1958 on Cobra's Artistic Records subsidiary. From 1956–1958 Cobra issued singles by a variety of acts, including Ike Turner CD1/6; CD2/9 and several blues veterans. However by 1959 financial troubles overtook the company and it went out of business. Eli Toscano died in 1967.
Excellent sound transfers and liner notes by One Day Music regular Michael Heatley. Check out this label for more 1950s label retrospective collections. Excellent value.

`DOUBLE TROUBLE'
The Cobra Records Story 1956-1959 contains 40 Original Recordings by the original artsist.
As the title tells you the tracks are over 50 years old and are public domain.
But the Amazon Track listing is a bit cluttered and hard to read so this list may make it easier?

This is a very welcome release of 40 tracks from Eli Toscano’s short-lived Cobra Records that he founded in the late 1950s in West Side Chicago. There is some cracking music on this double CD including two of the giants of electric blues guitar - Otis Rush and Magic Sam. Other blues stars include pianist Sunnyland Slim, harp player extraordinaire Walter ’Shakey’ Horton and the irrepressible Big Willie Dixon. Ike Turner has a couple of tracks as does Little Willie Foster who deserves more recognition than he often gets, and Harold Burrage.
One Day Music is gaining a good reputation for releasing bargain-priced CDs featuring many American labels of the 1950s and 1960s. This is a very good release and if you like Chicago Blues then this is an essential purchase.
