Editorial Reviews

4 CDs of funkin’ magic from the legendary Bobby Rush! When you’ve played with Elmore James, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and Jimmy Reed, you must be on to something. When you’ve had a multi-generational career in music, that’s something else. And, when you hear “Chicken Heads,” you know it’s all about the magical Bobby Rush! Bobby’s incredible half-century of recorded music is ready to be devoured by those who’ve never tasted and those who want another helping on Chicken Heads: A 50-Year History Of Bobby Rush! From his Checker, Galaxy and Jewel sides through Philadelphia International, LaJam and Urgent cuts and into the Deep Rush Material – Chicken Heads tells the story of Bobby Rush: unfiltered, unedited and unbelievable. This unprecedented collection of nearly 100 tracks from Bobby’s storied career are finally collected on Chicken Heads: A 50-Year History Of Bobby Rush. With almost 5 hours of music on 4 CDs, Chicken Heads traces his career from 1964’s “Someday” through the title track, 1979 collaborations with Gamble & Huff to tracks from 2004’s FolkFunk. The 32 page, full color booklet is filled with photos, ephemera, liner notes from Bill Dahl and testimonials from friends and fans including Mavis Staples, Keb’ Mo’, Elvin Bishop, Denise LaSalle, Leon Huff, Al Bell and many more. With mastering and restoration by Grammy® winner Michael Graves, Bobby’s never sounded better! We can’t say it better than Dahl does at the opening of his essay: “Blues never get funkier than when Bobby Rush swaggers up to the mic and lets fly with his homespun truisms. He’s always in motion, always smiling, always on fire as his skintight band cooks up irresistible elastic grooves behind him.” So, prepare to get funky with Chicken Heads: A 50-Year History Of Bobby Rush!

Stream Chicken Heads: A 50-Year History Of Bobby Rush by Bobby Rush and tens of millions of other songs on all your devices with Amazon Music Unlimited. Exclusive discount for Prime members.
