South Side Chicago Blues [Delmark]

South Side Chicago Blues [Delmark]


1 New & Used Starting at $1.99


While it's true that most Chicago blues fans will have many if not all of these tracks, there is something very satisfying about the way this compilation has been assembled by Delmark, which issued it as part of the label's 50th anniversary celebration. With Little Walter, Byther Smith, J.B. Hutto (doing his awesome "Slidewinder"), Junior Wells, Jimmy Rogers, Robert Jr. Lockwood, and Sunnyland Slim on the same disc, it's already a party. Add to that Big Time Sarah and Carey and Lurrie Bell (separately), and it goes over the top. This is a burning-to-the-bone selection of Chicago blues from the city's south side, where everything comes down to sweat, groove, and feel. There are enough legends to make it interesting to the eye, but the pleasure is all in the tracks themselves. For the price you cannot beat this one.
