Watch Video: The Chess Records Story

From Muddy Waters to Bo Diddley to Chuck Berry to Etta James, Chess Records helped solidify Chicago as one of the music centers of the world and became the bridge between rural southern blues and the emergence of both rock and soul music. And the documentary The Chess Records Story tells an awful lot of that history in a pretty short time. It is great watching and a virtualy musical history lesson.
