The Rough Guide to Chicago Blues

Overview

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.
