Cadillac Records by Darnell Martin( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chess Records was located on the south side of Chicago. In 1947, it began recording blues music with Muddy Waters and Little Walter. This eventually gave birth to rock and roll in 1955 with Chuck Berry. Record producer Leonard Chess has an ear for this different type of music and believes he can cash in by signing up new talent such as songwriter Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, and Etta James. Chess makes all of his artists part of his family and takes care of them. This is not easy since they spend a small fortune on booze, drugs, and the high life. When Chuck Berry goes to jail, Leonard is able to find another talented performer, Etta James, to take his place. In the late sixties, as their music goes out of favor, Leonard Chess gets out of the record business

The Michael McAlpin Collection consists primarily of print materials used in the production of the PBS television documentary Record Row: the Cradle of Rhythm and Blues , which first aired in February 1997. VHS tapes of the rough cut and final broadcast versions of the documentary as well as local coverage by PBS station WTIU (Bloomington, IN) are also included. Complete transcripts of interviews conducted for the documentary feature many prominent scholars, musicians, and industry professionals. Between 1950 and 1980, Chicago was home to a score of independent recording companies, most notably Chess Records.

It is the story of a group of men and women, largely African American, whose ambition, talent, and business skills created the Chicago sound - a musical style that revolutionized popular music around the world.
