The Chicago Blues Box: The MCM Records Story



Marcelle Chailleux Morgantini, una joven francesa, estaba en el lugar correcto en el momento adecuado. Cuando tenía 50 años heredó algo de dinero y lo primero que le dijo a su marido (Jacques Morgantini) fue lo siguiente: "no quiero abrigos o joyas costosas, deseo ir a Chicago para grabar el blues". Sabía que no podía hacerse si no tenía su propia etiqueta y un completo control artístico. Así nació MCM Records, un trabajo de amor que capturó muchas presentaciones en vivo a partir del último florecimiento del Chicago blues clásico.
Marcelle hizo tres viajes a Chicago (1975,1976 y 1977) y, ayudada por el guitarrista Jimmy Dawkins, un buen amigo que le presentó a los mejores bluesman de la ciudad de los vientos, llegó con su máquina de Nagra, una pequeña mesa de mezclas y una selección de micrófonos. Consiguió grabar en directo a Magic Slim, Big Mojo Elem,John Littlejohn, Eddie Clearwater,Eddie Taylor, Bobby King,Jimmy Johnson, Luther Johnson Jr.,Willie Kent, James Lyons,Hip Lankchan,Big Vocie Odom,Bluebloos McMahon, Joe Carter y Jimmy Dawkins en “Ma Bea’s”, “Golden Slipper”, “Queen Bea’s”, y “Big Duke’s”, en Chicago oeste y sur. Muchos de estos músicos no se había registrado aún, pero la etiqueta Storyville emitió todas las grabaciones en CD.
