Chicago Roots Collective a couple years ago with the goal of getting local bands working together and developing a stronger music scene in the Windy City. Its 19 tracks feature mostly Chicago-based bands (many of which we've written about here on WCR, such as Bailiff, Dastardly, Derek Nelson & the Musicians and Sad Brad Smith) plus a few out-of-state artists worth checking out as well.
