The best Chess blues records laid the foundation for rock’n’roll as we know it – and their influence continues to be felt today. When people talk about the Chess sound they are not usually referring to some of the brilliant early rock’n’roll music made in Chicago – by pioneers such as Chuck Berry and Etta James – but to the blues records of such greats as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker, cut as singles and albums either through Chess or its. Checker subsidiary. Here we pick 10 of the best Chess blues singles of all time. Muddy Waters: ‘I Can’t Be Satisfied’. The second Sonny Boy Williamson, the man who stole his namesake’s moniker, was among the Chess artists who recorded singles that also had strong B-sides. His 1955 song ‘Don’t Start Me To Talkin’’, for example, was accompanied by the excellent ‘All My Love In Vain’.
John Dawson Winter III (February 23, 1944 – July 16, 2014), known as Johnny Winter, was an American musician, singer, songwriter, t, and producer. Best known for his high-energy blues-rock albums and live performances in the late 1960s and 1970s, Winter also produced three Grammy Award-winning albums for blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters. After his time with Waters, Winter recorded several Grammy-nominated blues albums.
