Description:
Personnel: Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley (vocals, guitar); Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter (vocals, harmonica); Etta James (vocals); Albert Jr. Lowe, Hubert Sumlin, Jimmy Rogers , Jody Williams, Leonard Caston, Pat Hare, Robert Lockwood, Jr. (guitar); Floyd Newman, Aaron Varnell, Charles Chalmers (saxophone); Dewey Oldham (piano, organ); Paul Williams & His Hucklebuckers , Hosea Lee Kennard, Johnnie Johnson, Lafayette Leake, Otis Spann (piano); Carl Banks (organ); David Hood (electric bass); Clifton James, Roger Dawkins, Earl Phillips, Francis Clay, Fred Below, Elgin Evans, Odie Payne, Jr. (drums); Jerome Green (maracas). Liner Note Author: Bill Dahl. Recording information: Chicago, IL (04/??/1948-08/23/1967); Muscle Shoals, AL (04/??/1948-08/23/1967). Photographer: Chuck Stewart. If you loved the songs you heard in the film CADILLAC RECORDS, based on the seminal Chicago blues label Chess, just wait until you hear the original versions, performed by the artists who put Chess on the map. The bedrock of Chicago blues is here with Muddy Waters's "I Can't Be Satisfied" and Little Walter's "Juke," but early rock & roll is represented too, by Chuck Berry's "Nadine" and "Promised Land." Come to think of it, this is a top-shelf Chess sampler even if you've never seen the aforementioned film.
