Just before Christmas I popped into my local charity shop for a potter.
They had a large number of Blues CDs which had been issued with a magazine called the Blues Collection.
I purchased Wang Dang Doodle by Koko Taylor.
It features 18 of her tracks from 1964 to 1969 recorded on the Chekker record label a subsidiary of the mighty Chess records.
The quality of the recordings is pretty good.
I was so impressed that I returned  today and "made them an offer they couldn't refuse" for the other 21 CDs from the collection which they had for sale.
My Christmas present to myself.
I can feel a series coming on!
