Chicago Ain’t Nothin’ But A Blues Band
Delmark DE 624
Compact Disc (1999)
With Eddy Clearwater, Sunnyland Slim, Morris Pejoe, Henry Gray, Jo Jo Williams, Little Mack Simmons and others. An explosion of nuclear-powered Chicago blues from 1958-’60 Atomic-H masters including many previously unissued recordings! Atomic-H Records was a tiny blues and gospel label that issued only a few 45s, owned and operated by Rev. Houston H. Harrington, who was Eddy Clearwater’s uncle and was responsible for Eddy making his way to Chicago from Alabama. This CD of Chicago Ain’t Nothin’ But A Blues Band features new descriptive notes containing additional information about Atomic-H and personnel; a full hour containing 23 songs, most of which are not on the LP version.
