AllMusic Review by

Recorded between 1962 and 1968 by Norman Dayron, Rare Chicago Blues is an enthralling collection of rare blues from artists like Otis Spann, Little Brother Montgomery, Big Joe Williams, Robert Pete Williams, as well as several others. Captured live in clubs and on the street, these tracks give a good taste of what real, gritty urban blues sounded like in the '60s and is worthwhile for true blues afficionados.
