Until the late 50's Chess records were recorded at Universal Studios in Chicago and this is where most of the greatest discs were cut. 2-track tape, tiny mixing console, live in the room. No overdubs, hence the multiple takes made of some recordings (I mean multiple! 20-30!). This was not a primitive environment, this studio was used to record the likes of Count Basie etc.

After that Chess had their own studio, info on which can easily be found as Walter says.

For a studio assignment, i have chosen to make a recording of "Walking by Myself", using some inspiration from Muddy Waters' "Got my Mojo Working" [from the 'Blues Guitar Experience', if anyone knows who plays harp on that recording please let me know].

What i basically need is a history lesson. What recording styles and what equipment would Muddy Waters usually use?
In my head i had assumed one take recording [i cant see Muddy overdubbing] and probably using nothing more than a 4 track [maybe, just maybe, an 8 track]
Would my assumptions be correct?

Thank you.
