CD reissue. 953 West stands the test of time... it's as enjoyable today as it was when it first came out. A great choice for the lover of blues and anyone who wants a feel good listen. The Siegel-Schwall Band was an American electric blues band from Chicago, Illinois. The band was formed in 1964 by Corky Siegel (harmonica and piano) and Jim Schwall (guitar). Corky and Jim met each other when both were music students at Roosevelt University. Corky was originally a saxophonist interested in blues and Jim's background was mostly in country music. They combined these two genres producing a lighter sounding blues. The Siegel-Schwall Band recorded five albums for the Wooden Nickel label in the early 1970s.
