An assortment of artists that recorded for Chess Records in the 1950’s and 60’s.

This CD has the original versions of the songs that were used in the film Cadillac Records. It is a nice mix of the variety of blues artists recording at Chess records. The music of Chuck Berry that gets you up and dancing or singing along, the powerful ballads of Etta James, the soulful songs of Muddy Waters and so much more. If you enjoy classic Rock and Roll, listen to the singer/songwriters that had a major influence on those artists. Available to borrow from the CADL collection or downloadable from Hoopla.
