A bargain at twice this price!,
This review is from: Chicago Blues: The Absolutely Essential 3CD Collection (Audio CD)
Three CDs for just over a fiver - this is a real bargain and a great sampler of 50s and eary 60s classic Chicago blues, mainly from Chess records. All the greats are here Muddy, Wolf, SBW, Little Walter, Jimmy Reed, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, plus you also get some excellent supporting players - Jimmy Rogers, Eddie Boyd, Junior Wells, Lowell Fulson, Willie Mabon, Magic Sam, Walter Horton, James Cotton and Billy Boy Arnold. There are real classics like Wolf's "Red rooster" and Jimmy Reed's "Bright lights big city" and also more obscure tracks like "You don't treat me right" by Guitar Shorty and John Brim's "Be careful what you do".
This would be bargain at twice this price!
