All the 1966-1970 recordings Corky Siegel and Jim Schwall made for Vanguard: The Siegel-Schwall Band, Say Siegel-Schwall, Shake! and Siegel-Schwall '70 . Rare early cuts and later recordings are thrown in, too. 3 CDs, priced like two!

5.0 out of 5 stars Siegel-Schwall...it just keeps getting better!! July 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
At long last, Vanguard Records has released the first four albums recorded by the legendary Siegel-Schwall Band. This has to be the deal of the year, folks, when you consider that you get four classic albums recorded between 1966 and 1970, by the best white blues band ever, spread over three discs and sprinkled with killer previously unreleased outtakes and demos, all in STUNNINGLY CLEAN sound quality (I was so used to my old vinyl albums) and rounded out with a highly informative and eye pleasing booklet, and all for about [...]!! If you don't have this one yet, wait no longer. Buy it today!! And if you do already own it, then you've played it over and over and you know exactly what I'm talking about!
The Siegel-Schwall Band came up out of Chicago and learned from and played with the masters. I'm talking about masters like Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Otis Spann...the list goes on. They were so good that Sam Charters, (the famous blues historian and archivist) produced thier first couple of albums. If HE was taken with them, you KNOW they have to be good.
By the way, the Siegel-Schwall Band are still active today and still play with all the virtuosity and conviction that is represented on "The Complete Vanguard Sessions". And don't forget to check out thier "Wooden Nickel" label output from 1971-1974 (recently reissued on the "Wounded Bird" label). They just kept getting better and better. This is the real deal, folks.

Respite being 50yrs+ I have only recently become interested in the Blues. I stumbled upon these guys while googling and playing samples. I was was rapt when I heard them and watched a couple of videos. I admit to not being a blues 'purist' and I like music to have a tune and a bit of life in it. I find that some traditional blues is a bit depressing and I can only listen to so much before switching off. However, this collection of CDs is great and I have had a lot of pleasure listening to them. Ok, I don't like every track but I don't dislike any. On a 3 CD set such as this there are so many tracks and there are a large number that I am particularly fond of. It has broadened my musical horizons and I have now acqainted myself with the likes of Peter Green, Taj Mahal and others.
I really enjoyed these CDs and rate them highly. How come it took so long to hear of them? I now find out that some of my mates knew about them 30 years or so ago.
I totally recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars they seem to be forgotten March 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
no one ever mentions these guys anymore and that is a shame. In fact, hardly any people even know of them which is also a shame, Unique vocals, stinging guitar, excellent harp and piano. along with butterfield, john Hammond and musselwhite, these guys were my first introduction to the blues.
