Double vinyl LP pressing. BLUES JAME IN CHICAGO VOL. 1 & 2 was the result of a recording session with Fleetwood Mac in early 1969 at Chess Records in Chicago, home to Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, amongst others. Then a young British blues band, Peter Green, John McVie, guitarists Danny Kirwan and Jeremy Spencer and Mick Fleetwood jammed with a number of famous Chicago Blues artists from whom they drew inspiration. Since the Peter Green-led Fleetwood Mac was so directly influenced by Chicago blues, the session acts as a kind of stylistic homecoming for the band. The following Windy City Blues legends were present at this single-day session: Otis Spann, David 'Honeyboy' Edwards, Buddy Guy, Walter 'Shakey' Horton, J. T. Brown, Willie Dixon and S.P. Leary. Willie Dixon oversaw the proceedings, and can be heard during the between song banter giving directions and chastising Walter 'Shakey' Horton for missing his cues. Originally released in two volumes, they have been combined into one powerful package.
