The Chicago Blues Box: The MCM Records Story

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
MCM Records was founded by a French woman, Marcelle Chailleux Morgantini, after she heard the blues live in the clubs during a trip to Chicago. She returned to Chicago with a tape machine, a small mixing board, and a good selection of microphones in 1975, 1976, and 1977, capturing a very specific time in the history of Chicago blues, recording live sets by Magic Slim, Eddie Clearwater, Eddie Taylor, Bobby King, Jimmy Johnson, Willie Kent, James Lyons, Joe Carter, Jimmy Dawkins, and others, and then issuing them on her own MCM imprint. All of these sessions are collected here, capturing a late Golden Age for Chicago blues.
