Good news: all the "Chess" hits and rarities collected in this priceless Box where Muddy Waters,Howlin'Wolf and Elmore James are rubbing shoulders with Chuck Berry,Bo Didley and Etta James. Bad news: CD-Box is rich with completely obscure and long forgotten names,singers who had they 5 minutes of fame in say,1953. but liner notes are completely useless as the essay which is spread on 53 (!) pages is exclusively focused only on the explanation that "Chess" was very important company and counting big names.(CD-Room does not provide any more informations either) Now,its nice to have all "Chess" hits,but they are easily available anyway - the juice of this CD-Box is the presence of LOTS and LOTS of obscure names,great singers who were not commerically sucessful and instead of explaining who these people were,the essay is full of Muddy Waters photos.There is a singer (L.C.Cooke) who is a spitting image of Sam Cook - nothing about him (I had to search high and low to find out that he was actually Sam Cook's brother).There is a funny guy called Clarence "Frogman" Henry,nothing about him.There is a vocal group called "Barbara & The Browns" where lead vocal sounds like young Tina Turner (I am listening Tina's records for 20 years now and I never stumbled upon such similarity),no informations about her whatsoever.On a disc 7 instead of Chuck Berry's "Rock and Roll music" there is another song from different performer. It is a very expensive CD-Box and for me the information about musicians are VERY important,I want to know who is it,so if I like it,I can look further in that direction and discover something else.Instead of useless CD-Room and CD with interview,they should have better essay with complete explanations who these performers were.
