One of the oldest chess openings, the Italian game (also known as the Giuoco Piano) still has relevance today. The Italian has seen a resurgence in the last couple of years due to the influence of defences to the Spanish (Ruy Lopez) such as the Berlin and the Marshall and GM Saric believes every serious 1.e4 player should have both 3.Bb5 and 3.Bc4 in their repertoire. With many 1…e5 players expecting 3.Bb5, the Italian can be a great surprise weapon, especially when you are well prepared.

Although Albert King is pictured on the front cover and has the lion's share of tracks on this excellent compilation, six of the fourteen tracks come from Rush's shortlived tenure with the label and are some of his very best. Chronologically, these are his next recordings after the Cobra sides and they carry a lot of the emotional wallop of those tracks, albeit with much loftier production values with much of it recorded in early stereo. Oddly enough, some of the material ("All Your Love," "I'm Satisfied [Keep on Loving Me Baby]") were remakes – albeit great ones – of tunes that Cobra had already released as singles! But Rush's performance of "So Many Roads" (featuring one of the greatest slow blues guitar solos of all time) should not be missed at any cost.
