This quarterly magazine is designed to record not only the exploits of those men and women who fulfil their varied roles as star players, trainers and sponsors, but also the endeavors of the many unsung heroes who work behind the scenes in national organizations, clubs and institutions supportive of chess. Such a broad–based movement will surely play its part in “making American chess great again”, and the ACM will be committed to promoting even wider recognition and greater popularity of our beloved game.

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.

With Playing Chess LeGrow’s instinctual interpretations of Chess Records classics take on fresh life. These 11 retro pop tracks benefit from LeGrow’s gritty, heartfelt vocals, effortlessly delivered with sass and strut. “We definitely had a vision for what the sonics of the record would be,” reflects LeGrow, “but we also left a lot of space for experimentation. The album’s eclecticism results from the spontaneous collision of my own musical influences with those of everyone in the studio, spanning decades and genres.”
