5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Chicago blues recordings, 1 Mar 2014
This review is from: Chicago/the Blues/Today (Audio CD)
It's great to have these classic mid-60s LPs reissued in one CD set - although I just wish they could have kept the iconic original album art work with gritty photographs of the city that for me at the time perfectly summed up contemporary Chicago blues - I used to travel 15 miles to Liverpool just to look at the covers! At the time although we were aware of Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Jimmy Reed etc these were all very much new names to us and I still love the raw feel to the recordings of these acts who had honed their performances in the clubs of Chicago. My favourite at the time was Volume two - Jimmy Cotton, Otis Rush and Homesick James - but I still like the variety here from the soul-tinged performances of Otis Rush and Junior Wells to the very raw almost country sounds of Johnny Young and Johnny Shines - with the added bonus of Walter Horton's harp. Truly classic recordings.
