Reseña de álbum

Jimmy Rogers, one of Chess Records' less well-known recording artists under his own name though he was a mainstay of Muddy Waters' band in the early '50s, was well-represented by the two-CD set Complete Chess Recordings issued in 1997, the year of his death. But that collection, with its numerous alternate takes, was a little more than the average blues fan needed, so this still-generous one-disc, 22-track distillation is a welcome addition to his catalog. Though Rogers did not formally launch a solo career until 1956, he was making occasional records for Chess as early as 1950, with "That's All Right" inaugurating his work as a leader.

Lane (Rogers was his stepdad's surname), the...
