VA: Chess Soul Sisters (1961-1972): “

Mojo invites you to get down with the girls on this 20-track collection featuring some of the most significant female performers on the Chess label. From Marlena Shaw to Fontella Bass, Sugar Pie De Santo to Etta James and beyond. Real singers, backed by real musicians, performing some of the greatest, blazing, knock down bluesy, funkiest tracks ever recorded; classics all. The only downside is that for most long time collectors, you might already have virtually all of the cuts (‘Fire’ by Etta James, ‘Rescue Me’ by Fontella Bass… you know, not exactly hard to find tracks), but instead of having to make your own mix CD, Chess/Mojo has done that for you. Enjoy! http://www.amazon.com/
