The Aces & Their Guests




This CD was recorded live at Ma Bea's Club in Chicago in 1975. The nucleus of the band is the famous rhythm group known as The Aces (guitar, bass & drums) led by drummer Freddy Below. The musical style here is classic Chicago blues. The 16 tunes on this low-down, steamy  live Chicago club session are "the real thing" – totally natural, heart-felt and deeply moving. Powered by the famous Chicago rhythm section, this session features som great guitar-playing and vocals by special guest Joe Carter – who plays a mean, yet touching, Elmore James-style guitar – and Bobby King.
