Eddie Clearwater - Direct From Chicago

Live recordings from 1976 and 1977 from Eddie Clearwater backed by Jimmy Dawkins, Eddie Taylor, Frred Below and others.
The recordings done by Marcelle Morgantini for her small MCM label may not be the best quality but where done with love and respect for the musicians and music. Also led to the launching of several  (international) careers such as Magic Slim, Eddie Clearwater and others.
For most blues fans it was also the closest most of us ever got to a Blues club in Chicago.  I suggest you visit for more info on MCM and where you can purchase a 8cd box set (as I have.... yes I do buy cd's and so should you.)

I own the Chicago Blues Box that you mention in the post. I don't know if it has all of the MCM recordings but it has a lot of great ones. Highly recommended if you are fan of Chicago blues. I can't imagine there are many that go to this website who are not.
