LP Artwork: Goin' to Chicago

A great cover of an album by one of the great blues shouters, Jimmy Rushing.

Recorded on December 1st, 1954 in New York, Rushing's energetic and emphatic delivery is complemented by an all-star line up including Buddy Tate, Freddie Green, Walter Page, Emmett Barry, Lawrence Brown, Sammy Price and Jo Jones.

Quite simply, they don't make 'em like that anymore!
