A tribute to the Chicago blues, one that cites the address of legendary Chess Records, 2120 South Michigan Avenue is a bit of a redundancy. Let's face it: George Thorogood's entire career has played out as one long tribute to the Chicago blues. The raspy-throated singer seemingly never tires of recording his favorite tunes from Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, et al. With that in mind, this album doesn't break new ground, yet it isn't short on energy and verve either. Thorogood and his band tear into each track as if they're playing it for the very first time.
