Reaching Out:Chess Records At Fame Studios / Var [Import] on CD

2015 collection, After a brief break, Kent Records’ series of CDs devoted to the music that came out of Fame Studios in the ‘60s and ‘70s resumes with this overview of the recordings cut there by artists who recorded for Chicago's Chess Records. After leasing several masters from Fame's Rick Hall in the mid-60s, Chess started to send their own artists to Muscle Shoals. In 1967 and 1968 some of the best records the company issued were recorded at Fame, including several that revitalized the career of their flagship female artist, Etta James. "Reaching Out" features at least one recording from every Chess-signed act who recorded at Fame, a good many of which have never been on CD before (including unissued goodies from Maurice & Mac and Mitty Collier). The booklet features several previously unseen photos taken at Fame, as well as in-depth notes and a host of shots of original 45s and album covers.
