Description by

With Chicago blues legends Billy Boy Arnold, John Primer, Billy Branch, Lurrie Bell and Carlos Johnson leading the way, Chicago Blues: A Living History debuted with a Grammy nod, two Blues Music Award nominations and multiple international awards.

The (R)evolution Continues is the largest-ever gathering of Chicago blues greats for one studio recording, with guest appearances by Buddy Guy, James Cotton, Magic Slim, Ronnie Baker Brooks and Zora Young. The music on this two-disc set stirs the soul with songs from the 40s to the 90s. These are commanding performances by the bluesmen who played with the city's towering icons, musicians who form the bridge between the genre s pioneers and today's interpretation of Chicago blues.

Includes a deluxe 8-panel, full-color digipack with an accompanying 36-page full-color booklet filled with historical information as well as photos from renowned Chicago Blues photographer Raeburn Flerlage.
