This collection includes the A and B side of every single by these two blues giants, through to 1962 with Buddy Guy's hit "Stone Crazy" and the very different sound and feeling of Magic Sam's "All Your Love", this is excellent stuff. The blues in Chicago and indeed the blues on Chess Records, Chicago's top blues label, had by the late 1950s been dominated by just a handful of artists but by 1957 that would change as a new generation of blues men were getting a foothold on the scene. This superb CD concentrates on two of these young bloods, Buddy Guy and Magic Sam. These cuts set a new course for the blues at a time when the music was losing its core audience. Buddy Guy is today the elder statesman of the blues around the world and if it not for Magic Sam's tragic death at the very young age of 32 he would no doubt carry the same status.
