The Rough Guide to Chicago Bluesby Rough Guides Staff (Compiled by)
Chicago blues has produced some of the strongest artists and musical performances in the last half of the twentieth century. A result of the stream of African-American migrants from the rural farm-based economy of the southern states, it is a musical form that thrives today through the second and third generation of performers. The Rough Guide to Chicago Blues provides a broad range of styles that evolved into the mature electric ensemble sound that is Chicago blues, delving a little deeper into some of the less-reissued performers, labels and styles, and illustrating the great and varied musical heritage that musicians repeatedly return to for inspiration and structure.
