The Best of Chess Rock & Roll, Vol. 1

The Best of Chess Rock & Roll, Vol. 1


1 New & Used Starting at $6.57


The Best of Chess Rock & Roll, Vol. 1 charts some of the most crucial developments in the music, from blues-based romps to vocal harmony gems. Rightfully needing to be teamed with volume two on one disc, the slim but potent mix here takes in both key figures like Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley and such delightful dark horses as Dale Hawkins and New Orleans' Eddie Bo. So, whether your mood calls for street-corner symphonies by the Flamingos or some grizzled R&B from Clarence "Frogman" Henry, this collection will make for a fine night by the record player.
