OVERVIEW

An essential piece of blues and rock history!

While Chess Records' legacy as a dominating and shaping force on rock and roll is well chronicled, you don't really the company's signiificance until you're confronted with the music itself. This 2-disc, 36-track compilation drives that point home.

Whether they're blues tunes that have been covered so many times they now are staples of everyone's set list (Muddy Water's "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man," "I Just Want to Make Love to You"; Bo Diddley's "I'm a Man"; or Howlin' Wolf's "Back Door Man"), classics waiting to be covered ("More and More," "Bring It On Home," "Ice Cream Man"), or early rock classics themselves ("Rock and Roll Music," "Johnny B. Goode," "Susie-Q," "See You Later Alligator"), Chess seems to have laid the first set of musical footprints in the snow. This is an essential piece of rock history and a great primer for ground-floor roots music enthusiasts.
