Good news: all the "Chess" hits and rarities collected in this priceless Box where Muddy Waters,Howlin'Wolf and Elmore James are rubbing shoulders with Chuck Berry,Bo Didley and Etta James. Bad news: CD-Box is rich with completely obscure and long forgotten names,singers who had they 5 minutes of fame in say,1953. but liner notes are completely useless as the essay which is spread on 53 (!) pages is exclusively focused only on the explanation that "Chess" was very important company and counting big names.(CD-Room does not provide any more informations either) Now,its nice to have all "Chess" hits,but they are easily available anyway - the juice of this CD-Box is the presence of LOTS and LOTS of obscure names,great singers who were not commerically sucessful and instead of explaining who these people were,the essay is full of Muddy Waters photos.There is a singer (L.C.Cooke) who is a spitting image of Sam Cook - nothing about him (I had to search high and low to find out that he was actually Sam Cook's brother).There is a funny guy called Clarence "Frogman" Henry,nothing about him.There is a vocal group called "Barbara & The Browns" where lead vocal sounds like young Tina Turner (I am listening Tina's records for 20 years now and I never stumbled upon such similarity),no informations about her whatsoever.On a disc 7 instead of Chuck Berry's "Rock and Roll music" there is another song from different performer. It is a very expensive CD-Box and for me the information about musicians are VERY important,I want to know who is it,so if I like it,I can look further in that direction and discover something else.Instead of useless CD-Room and CD with interview,they should have better essay with complete explanations who these performers were. --- Sasha "lampic" (at sea...sailing somewhere), amazon.com

 

Chess Records was an American record label based in Chicago, Illinois. It specialized in blues, R&B, soul, gospel music, early rock and roll, and occasional jazz releases.

Run by brothers Leonard and Phil Chess, the company produced and released many important singles and albums, which are now regarded as central to the rock music canon. Musician and critic Cub Koda described Chess Records as "America's greatest blues label."

The Chess Records catalogue is now owned by Universal Music Group and managed by Geffen Records.

Chess Records was based at several different locations on the south side of Chicago, Illinois, initially at two different locations on South Cottage Grove Ave. The most famous location was 2120 S. Michigan Avenue from around 1956 to 1965, immortalized by British rock group The Rolling Stones in "2120 South Michigan Avenue", an instrumental recorded at that address during their first U.S. tour in 1964; the Stones would record at Chess Studios on two more occasions. The building is now home to Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation. In the mid-60s, Chess re-located to a much larger building at 320 E. 21st. St, the label's final Chicago home.
