Overview

After the popularity of Storyville’s first best-selling boxed set of Chicago blues recordings, we’re delighted to present another outstanding extensive collection from the vaults of MCM Records. As in the first boxed set, the live atmosphere of these unedited performances shines through, revealing the true ambiance of the Chicago Blues club scene in the mid-1970s, as well as the individuals whose talents MCM Records would preserve. They captured an authenticity that rarely surfaced on the major label recordings that some of these artists made. MCM was a labour of love by a young French woman, Marcelle Chailleux, and her future husband, Jacques Morgantini. A recent blues convert, Marcelle traveled to Chicago in the mid-1970s to record a unique collection of live performances. Some of these performances presented here were by men, who would become giants of the blues; others were talented artists who never found wider fame, and whose MCM recordings remain the only surviving evidence of their talent. In this superb collection, you will find rare tracks by Eddie Taylor, Big Mojo Elem, Andrew “Blueblood” McMahon, Big Voice Odom, Hip Lankchan, Eddie Clearwater, Jimmy Dawkins, Jimmy Johnson, Magic Slim, John Littlejohn, Bobby King and The Aces. The recordings stem from famous Chicago blues venues Ma Bea’s, the Golden Slipper and Big Duke’s.
