Bobby Rush's Career Compiled on New 4-CD Box Set

Bluesmaster Bobby Rush has been recording for almost fifty years and, on October 27, Omnivore Records will release a four-CD set spanning that amazing career.

Chicken Heads: A 50-Year History of Bobby Rush compiles many of Bobby's singles along with music from his over 25 albums with a total of 74 tracks from his earliest recordings to tracks from his 2014 set Decisions.

Rush got his early influence from Elmore James with whom he became friends while still a teen. He and his family moved to Chicago when he was twenty where he befriended his neighbor, Muddy Waters and, before long, he started playing with the likes of Jimmy Reed, Etta James, Howlin' Wolf and Waters.

His first single, Sock Boo Ga Loo, was released in 1967 but he came into his own in 1971 with the release of Chicken Heads which made it to 34 on the R&B charts.

Bobby is a multiple winner at the Blues Music Awards and was recently inducted into the Rhythm & Blues Music Hall of Fame in Clarksdale, MS.
