Chicago/The Blues/Today!, Vol. 1

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
The first volume in the groundbreaking, definitive series Chicago: The Blues Today! contains selections from J.B. Hutto, Junior Wells and Otis Spann. All three contribute stellar performances, but for Hutto it's truly the place to start, because it doesn't get much better than this; "Too Much Alcohol," "Please Help," "Going Ahead" and "That's The Truth" are all classics, and Hutto is in perfect form throughout, with swinging support from the Turner's Blue Lounge version of the Hawks, bass-rhythm guitarist Herman Hassell and former Bo Diddley drummer Frank Kirkland. Sound is crystal clear.
