The Living History Band

Chicago Blues: A Living History

2009-05-11

This looks like a greatest hits compilation but it’s actually a retrospective performed by a modern Chicago collective calling themselves The Living History Band. They’re joined by 4 of Chicago’s great blues traditionalists – harp masters Billy Boy Arnold and Billy Branch; and guitarists Lurrie Bell and John Primer. Extensive liners explain the significance of the honored artists, none of whom, it could be pointed out, were born north of the Mason-Dixon.
