Rough Treatment: The J.O.B. Records Story - Brilliant Blues Collection

J.O.B. Records was started in 1949 by bluesman Jimmy Oden; and while it only lasted until 1972, it had a lot of great bluesmen under it's arm, including Eddie Boyd (who's song 'Five Long Years' got him and the label fame), Sunnyland Slim, Johnny Shines, Snooky Pryor, and Floyd Jones to name a few. 

In 2001, Westside Records released a compilation called 'Rough Treatment: The J.O.B. Records Story' of some of the tracks from the period between 1952-1962, and features some of the rawest, meanest Chicago Blues.

I promise you will NOT be dissapointed. It has 54 (!) tracks on 2 CD's. 

Here's one of the tracks, the song used as the title of this compilation, 'Rough Treatment' by Little Hudson:
