I hate to succumb to the Internet bad habit of posting something without listening to it first, but this seems as obvious as a Bill Cartwright elbow to the head. Plus, it’s bound to be an improvement on the last well-known Chicago tribute that involved the guy from Coldplay mewling about the shores of Lake Michigan. After all, this involves a team-up between the ruthlessly consistent Numero Group and Chicago cultural historian Tim Samuelson, for a three hour mix spanning Windy city music from 1908 through 1980, including Muddy Waters, Jelly Roll Morton, and Willie Dixon. It promises to be better than Bundy.
