AS one of our Recommended Recordings we are recommending The Real Folk Blues / More Real Folk Blues by Sonny Boy Williamson, released on Chess Records.
This is a compilation of two Sonny Boy Williamson albums released by Chess Records: The Real Folk Blues, released in 1966, and More Real Folk Blues, released in 1967.
It contains 24 Sonny Boy Williamson recordings made by Chess Records in Chicago between 1957 and 1964. We think the sound is better on this release than the less expensive The Real Folk Blues CD.
