Rezension

Nachdem er für Sun und Bobbin aufnahm, landete er 1963 bei Chess in Chicago und entwickelte seinen Sound weiter, eine Art Booby Bland-style R&B mit Blues- und Soul-Beigaben. Viel Gebläse im Hintergrund, erstklassige Leadgitarre und sehr viel Soul in der Stimme, dazu veritable Hits Who’s Cheating Who?, If Walls Could Talk, Grits Ain’t Groceries, I Feel So Good, Let Me Down Easy, Just A Little Bit – 16 Tracks of Rhythm`n´Soul Greatness.

Review

"Milton Campbell was a blues chameleon in his early recording career for Sun and Bobbin, changing styles seemingly with every record he made. But he found his groove - a Bobby Bland-style R&B with a bluesy edge to it - when he came to Chess Records in 1963. These 16 tracks collect the highlights of his six-year tenure at the label, featuring the hits "Weþre Gonna Make It," "Whoþs Cheating Who?" and "If Walls Could Talk." The majority of the sides feature strong horn charts courtesy of Oliver Sain and Gene Barge, the core of Miltonþs sound during this period. The stylistic connection of Milton to Bland is no more stronger evidenced than on his cover of "Blind Man," but equal mention in the soulful department must go to the heart-wrenching ballad "Let Me Down Easy" and "Poor Manþs Song," one of two songs collected here that Campbell had a hand in writing. Interesting updates of Little Willie Johnþs "All Around the World" ("Grits Ainþt Groceries"), Chuck Willisþ "I Feel So Bad" and Rosco Gordonþs "Just a Little Bit" complete the package. As part of MCAþs Chess 50th Anniversary Series, this sweats the two-disc Welcome to the Club: The Essential Chess Recordings down to a perfect introductory package to this sometimes misunderstood (is he blues? soul? R&B?) artist." (AMG(
