I've been enjoying some blues on the internet radio. If I were to want to sample some Chicago blues, where should I start?
Chicago blues - who should I sample?
Alligator Records entire catalogue.
Ygm about their compilations.
Howling Wolf is a predicatble choice but superb.
Chess records have pretty good box set The Chess Story 1947 - 1975. Bit pricey to buy though.
Sonny Boy Williamson ll
A bit obvious but Muddy Waters
The Chess compilations are really good...
eddiebaby- I've been looking at the Alligator label- worth a punt?
There are some good compilations out there , I would try " chicago blues masters " .
Mud Morganfield, son of Muddy Waters, contemporary but still Chicago Blues. Keb Mo for a slightly lighter feel.
