Inspired by the initial success of artists like Big Bill Broonzy and the newly electrified sounds of Muddy Waters the Chicago Blues scene changed music forever. The album features the best of the artists who played and recorded in Chicago whose music would travel the world in the early 60's and make household names of singers whose aim at the time was to secure well paid gigs with the bonus of a local Chicago hit. Names like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Sunnyland Slim, Elmore James, Floyd Jones, J B Lenoir, Jimmy Rogers, Little Walter.What these recordings actually did was inspire British and American teenagers to change the course of rock music forever.
