Harvey Cockliss's 'Chicago Blues' was a remarkable film; remarkable in that it was not just a competent documentary, but a film crafted with care by professionals with a love and understanding of music and a respect for it's history and artists. The commentary struck the right balance between the social and political background and the music itself while the music married to the atmosphere and photography gave the real flavor of black Chicago. This album is the music from that film. Rare and authentic unearthed performances previously left on the cutting room floor, now brought to life in this iconic movie. From unknown amateur to world-famous stars, from grand house to small dimly lit bar, from traditional down home to modern city style, this album perfectly reflects the unrivaled power and presence of 60s Chicago blues.
