Much loved Chess Records harmonica man Little Walter has a new and comprehensive boxset anthology out now.
The Complete Chess Masters: 1950-1967 is a limited edition 5CD set, covering all aspects of his recording career. Walter had fourteen top 10 R&B hits between 1952 and 1958,
including the number ones Juke and My Babe. The 126
recordings here include nine previously unreleased recordings, including a pair of songs recorded with Bo Diddley.
The majority of the songs contained within have sadly long been out of print, making this release something of a special occasion. The set also contains numerous photographs and extensive liner notes by Little Walter biographers' Tony Glover, Scott Dirks & Ward Gaines.
