by Koko Taylor
Released: Jan 1969
Taylor's booming voice was a revelation when Chess released this album in 1969. It's still a revelation for anyone who's never had his or her ears ripped off by Taylor's OVER-the-over-the-top delivery. Funky, soulful and at full volume at all times, the blues singer made her name with this album. Her cover of "Wang Dang Doodle" is her signature moment.
