5 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE
“If Rush had never recorded another note, his legendary status would remain intact based solely on these recordings.” – Sean Westergaard (AMG)

Left-handed Chicago electric blues guitar giant Otis Rush is a living link to a Chicago blues scene ruled by the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Little Walter in the late ‘50s. But the harsh reality that Rush has never quite attained the status of those icons in no way is a reflection on his talents; he is in fact an unsung legend who along with Buddy Guy helped to definethat distinctive, wailing “West Side” Chicago guitar sound that is widely copied by generations of followers all over the world today. This quintessential release contains 26 remastered tracks from Rush’s early years, backed by master players like Willie Dixon, Little Walter and Ike Turner. Included here is a variety of the electric blues and R&B sides Rush recorded for legendary labels such as Cobra, Chess, and Duke, between 1956 and 1962. “I Can’t Quit You Baby”, “Double Trouble” (later covered by Eric Clapton and John Mayall), “I’m Satisfied”, “Groaning the Blues”, “So Many Roads, So Many Trains”, and “It Takes Time”, are all featured here. These fabulous songs are true snapshots of that period. Some of the material here isn’t available in other collections, nor have these recordings ever been previously compiled together on the same CD.
