Of the many seminal dates in blues history, the year 1950, in which the mighty Chess Records name first appeared on a record label, stands among the most crucial of all. And a new and exciting age in rhythm and blues was dawning way beyond the work of Muddy Waters and his cohorts in Chicago.

Just as the depression slowed the development of the record industry in the early 1930s, the entry of America into WW II brought about another hiatus. Although the war effort generated an industrial revival that finally banished the last effects of the earlier economic crash, it also resulted in a shortage of shellac, the raw material used in the manufacture of 78 rpm records. The resultant rationing curtailed record production. At the same time, in 1942, the American Federation of Musicians imposed a recording boycott in protest at the growing trend for jukeboxes and disc jokeys, which it claimed was putting musicians out of work. By the early 1940s there were almost 250,000 jukeboxes in the US, and AFM president James Cesar Petrillo denounced the 78 rpm record as "the number one scab". The strike lasted until 1944, and although few blues musicians were union members, many found their careers brought to an abrupt halt.

The Great Depression, which followed in the wake of the Wall Street Crash of October 1929, had a profound effect on the blues and the market for "race" records, as it did on every other walk of American life. At first, the stock market collapse principally hit the rich. But as banks and then small businesses failed in increasing numbers, the effects rapidly trickled down.

Whether drowning sorrows or having a high old time, booze and the blues have usually marched toghether...

Who first palyed the blues, and the precise circumstances of its birth, remain shrouded in mystery. But there can be no doubt about where the music emerged - the alluvial plain in the northwest section of the state of Mississippi, created by thousands of years of flooding known as the Mississippi Delta.

Fats Waller dreamt about a reefer "five feet long". Even Ella Fitzgerald reckoned "wacky dust" was "something you can trust". And for the early blues-men, sniffin' and whiffin' was part of the way of life...
