Celebrating the indies
This two-CD box set is the third from Capricorn Records to highlight and capture the historic recordings of a small blues/R&B label.
The accompanying folio is beautifully illustrated; the recordings completely annotated. And the artists well, they're what make this collection so noteworthy.
It was one Willie Dixon who produced most of these sessions, and these were some of the first recordings made by such future luminaries as Otis Rush ("All Your Love (I Miss Loving)"), Buddy Guy and Magic Sam. And if not their first or most noteworthy performances, having Ike Turner and Sunnyland Slim is still a treat.
