COBRA RECORDS was founded in 1956 by ELI TOSCANO a record shop owner in Chicago, sensibly he left all the creative decisions to his in house producer and writer WILLIE DIXON who had just left CHESS RECORDS
DIXON then signed the three best second generation performers of the Chicago blues BUDDY GUY, OTIS RUSH and MAGIC SAM. He wrote them some great songs and encouraged them to develop the single note guitar leads that distinguished their style.
Unavailable for quite some time, now back in print. The result is some of the finest Chicago Blues ever recorded presented here on this 2 CD set
