Chicago was awash in independent record labels during the late 50's and early 60's, all hoping to challenge Chess and Vee-Jay. Profile Records landed a national hit with Junior Wells' 'Little By Little'. The label debuted in 1958 with pop crooner Johnny Doray`s 'One Of These Days' and closed its doors three years later with Hayden Thompsons's rockabilly hit 'Whatcha Gonna Do.' This compilation features Mel London's Chicago Label at its finest, with all the tunes you've known and loved from this historical gem.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
