Album Review

Chicago Blues Festival: 1969-1986 covers almost 20 years, looking back at some of the Chicago Blues Festival's more noteworthy moments. There's plenty of music here -- five discs and 77 songs. And there's more than enough big-name talent: John Lee Hooker, Eddie Taylor, Gatemouth Brown, Johnny Shines, Jimmy Dawkins, Otis Rush, Little Mack, Buster Benton, Lafayette Leake, and many more. This collection features mulitple performances by each of the featured artists, usually two to five performances per artist. If you're a blues fanatic, it doesn't get much better than this collection -- great music by great performers at a great festival in a great city for blues.
Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
