Billy Boy Arnold, John Primer, Billy Branch & Lurrie Bell: Chicago Blues: A Living History (2-CD)
A double CD set with covers of Chicago blues classics. Yes ' and no. This is not a simple and needless tribute album. This is 'living history' performed by some of the finest players from the Windy City. Producer Larry Skoller had the idea of presenting the seven decades spanning history of electric style Chicago blues, from Tampa Red to Buddy Guy ' and all the seminal players that helped shape the most popular urban blues style. And he will bring this project to American and European festival stages. There's never a dull moment. ''would call this essential. The 36-page booklet contains all the biographies, both from the original masters, and the contemporary school of players. Highly recommended. Beautiful 8-page Digipak.
