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.
