Chicago The Blues Today! Volume 1-3 on Import 180g 3LP

"This is the blues in Chicago today, the new virtuosity of men like Junior Wells and Otis Rush, the country sound of J.B. Hutto and Homesick James, the exuberance of Jimmy Cotton and Otis Spann, the deep blues involvement of Johnny Shines, Johnny Young, and Walter Horton, the young men learning the style like Memphis Charlie. A new music has emerged out of the poverty and the anger of the south side, a living music that has kept its own audience, its own expression, and its own truth." – from the original liner notes by blues historian/producer Samuel Charters

This new packaging puts all three volumes together, but with no bonus tracks, as no extras were recorded for these sessions. A plus in the new packaging, is that it features a nice booklet with detailed, updated notes from Samuel Charters, a nice appreciation from Ed Ward, and absolutely eye-boggling session photos taken by Ann Charters.

Even if you still have the original vinyl or CDs, this is one of the times when it would be best to spend the dough and add this one to your collection, because blues records seldom come as important, innovative, or just plain pleasurable to listen to as this set!
