The Age/Chief Blues Story

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Chief Records, along with its Age and Profile subsidiaries, was an independent Chicago label that operated from 1957 to 1964 in the shadow of another independent Chicago record label, Chess Records, and explored much of the same R&B and blues avenues. This two-disc, 36-track set collects classic sides from the Chief catalog, including Junior Wells' "Messing with the Kid," Elmore James' "Cry for Me Baby," Lillian Offitt's "Shine On," Sonny Lantz's "Blues for Sonny," and many other sides that shared in the birth and evolution of modern Chicago blues.
