The Chess Labels: A Discography (2 vols)
Author: Michel Ruppli
Publication date: 1983
This is the fourth book master discographer Ruppli has contributed to Greenwood's outstanding series, and it is as well organized and authoritative as its predecessors. After Atlantic, Chess was the most important black-oriented, independent American label. . . . Session musicians, recording dates, and label numbers are given when available, and can be cross-referenced. Invaluable for researchers.
