Format: Audio CD
At a rough count approximately a third of the tracks contained herein could be called classics in the overlapping fields of popular and roots music. That's according to my tastes of course but I'd be surprised if anyone's count came below ten. Faced with that one's critical capabilities tend to get a bit befuddled. About the only negative comment is that a potential purchaser might have quite a few of these tracks already.

To summarise: within the two CD set are some of the best examples you'll find anywhere of fifties and early sixties electric blues from Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Little Walter, splendid vocal harmony (doo woppy stuff to you and me) from the Flamingos, the Monotones and the Moonglows, superb rock'n'roll from Dale Hawkins (the positively feral "Susie Q"), Chuck Berry and the unique Bo Diddley, plus early soul from the quite magnificent Etta James.

At a level slightly below that there's some mighty fine rockabilly from guys who don't get in all the compilations - the hiccupping Billy Barrix and Lou Josie are personal favourites, more blues and blues / rock hybrids like Jimmy McCracklin's "The Walk", Louisiana flavours from Clarence "Frogman" Henry and Clifton Chenier, more doo woppers, nuggets of rock'n'roll history in the shape of Bobby Charles' "See you later alligator" and Jackie Brenston's "Rocket 88" (with its claims to be the first rock'n'roll record) plus an isolated but excellent "My foolish heart" from sax man Gene Ammons. This last track is significant in that it was the first record to be released on Chess (on 78 RPM) in July, 1950.

AND, there's G.L. Crockett's marvellous, "Look out Mabel", which seems to straddle the boundaries of rockabilly and Chicago blues.

Wow, wow, WOW! This is probably the most wonderful compilation I have ever had the pleasure to lay my ears on! For an insanely low price you too can be treated to classic, after classic. If you ever wanted to know and hear the songs that influenced just about every rock or pop group that rose to fame or dived to obscurity in the Sixties, and I include The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin in that group, just listen to this fabulous collection.
The great thing is that the compilers haven't just gone for obvious hits- and let's face it for the price they could have and few would have complained. In fact there are a lot of gems that I've never heard sitting alongside MASSIVE classics like Johnny B Goode and Who Do You Love. And all re-mastered.

For less than a fiver? You're mad if you miss this.
Just to sum up... I rather like this CD set!

With the likes of Muddy Walters, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley who pretty much put the 'nuts and bolts' into blues and rock you can't go wrong with this selection. Also included are 50's rockers Johnny B. Goode, Suzie Q, Nothin' Shakin' and arguably one of the first ever rock and roll releases 'Rocket 88' from 1951 which included Ike Turner on guitar. The Etta James tracks plus a few rarer tracks from the Chess archives make set a must buy.

This is an amazing compilation - so many seminal tracks from the classic eras of R&B and Rock and Roll. CD recordings are excellent, clear as a bell whilst retaining the original atmospheric sound.

As an introduction to so many very talented artists linked with the Chess record label, this is a very good place to start. Most listeners will be aware of some of the bigger names on this 2 disc compilation (Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, Etta James etc) but there are so many other artists here who had completely slipped through my net!! Covering a period of ten years or so from early 50's to 1960, it provides a very good insight into the development of Blues, Rock and Roll and to a smaller extent Soul music during this time, all intertwined very nicely. Even if you are fully aware of this period and genre of music, who did what and who influenced others, this compilation is well worth having in your collection.
