Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl.

Postwar Chicago had Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Chess Records, so it was indisputably the epicenter of electric blues, but there was a whole lot more to the city's vibrant urban blues scene than that, which this interesting collection shows, featuring blues tracks from Otis Rush ("Double Trouble"), Jimmy Reed ("Big Boss Man"), Magic Sam ("Easy Baby"), and Big Joe Williams ("Baby, Please Don't Go"), among others. ~ Steve Leggett
