V.A. - Cadillac Records - Music From the Motion Picture - Deluxe Edition (2008)

A dramatized history of Chess Records, "Cadillac Records" turns out to be a threadbare and homogenized account of the rise of the label’s most well-known stable of stars: Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter and Etta James. The movie peaks early with its opening scenes ripped from the pages of Can’t Be Satisfied, Robert Gordon’s wonderful biography of Muddy Waters with Alan Lomax tracking down McKinley Morganfield at the Stovall Plantation outside of Clarksdale, Mississippi. Once the narrative moves Waters to Chicago, the film starts leaving details as well as Chess’ brother Philip by the wayside. The movie touches on Little Walter’s demons, Waters’ womanizing, his animosity with Wolf and the paternalistic view Chess took over his charges but only superficially. In trying to include too much, Darnell Martin’s script glosses over the seamy underbelly of the travelling bluesmen, the complexity of the people involved and invents a romantic entanglement between Chess and James.

Deluxe Edition Two CD set. Cadillac Records stars Beyonce, Mof Def, Jeffrey Wright and Adrien Brody with the soundtrack featuring Beyonce, Mof Def, Columbus Short, Mary Mary, Raphael Saadiq, Solange, Little Walter and Nas with Olu Dara. The movie is about Leonard Chess who co-founded Chess Records, the pre-eminent blues label of the Fifties and Sixties, with his brother Phil. They formed Aristocrat Records in 1947 and the Chess label two years later with a mind-boggling flood of Blues, R&B plus Rock'N'Roll talent- Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Willie Dixon, Etta James and Little Walter. - amazon.com
