VARIOUS ARTISTS THE CHIEF BLUES STORY

For a label who’s lifespan was only five years from 1957-1961 the legacy is amazing. This double set featuring so many immensely influential names from Earl Hooker through Elmore James, Magic Sam, Junior Wells plus Lillian Offitt, Bobby & Lucy, Frank Butler that the set is certainly an entertaining one with notes by smashing liner man Michael Heatley, shame there is no booklet to go deeper into the label story here but nonetheless a neat double disc set in sturdy digi pack card fold out sleeve.

One Day comes under the Not Now label so there is plenty of good stuff under their wings to seek out and this is a fine set indeed.
