There's no improving on the Chess catalog, and this new compilation is a great place to start soaking it in. It includes signature songs from Diddley ("I'm a Man"), Waters ("Forty Days and Forty Nights"), Wolf ("Smokestack Lightnin' ") and James ("At Last"), as well as three tunes by Little Walter, a hurricane disguised as singer and harmonica player.
