New Bo DiddleyAnother Dimension ... LP
Chess, 1971. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Funky Bo Diddley – one of Bo's key early 70s sessions for Chess Records – all of which have him stepping out in a much harder groove than years past! The sound here is relatively tight – with Diddley guitar and vocals on top of some larger arrangements from Bob Gallo – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP
Chess, 1972. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Nasty nasty funk from the great Bo Diddley – one of his rare funky 70s classics for Chess – produced by Johnny Otis with a really tripped-out groove! The album's got an edge that seems to go even farther than some of Bo's other Chess work at the time – and picks up the full-on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chess/Get On Down, 1967. New Copy .... $12.99 14.98
A Chicago blues trifecta – and the first time ever that Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, and Little Waters ever worked together! The set's got a raw power that definitely lives up to the title – a wicked mix of raw guitars, rough rhythms, and some wonderfully soulful vocals – all served ... read more CD

Lowell FulsonHung Down Head (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1950s. New Copy .... $13.99
Great early work from Lowell Fulson – tracks recorded in the 50s for Chess Records – all in Chicago, and a fair bit more obscure than some of Lowell's better-known sides from the 60s! There's still a nicely gritty groove going on here – a style that's rooted in blues, but which ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Buddy GuyI Left My Blues In San Francisco (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1969. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Not the Bay Area effort you might guess from the title – and instead a sweet Chicago session that's easily one of the funkiest records that Buddy Guy ever cut! There's a great mix of funk and soul mixed in with the blues – thanks to arrangements from Charles Stepney and Gene Barge, who ... read more CD

New Howlin WolfBack Door Wolf (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Chess, 1973. New Copy (reissue).... $14.99
Later Chess work by Howlin Wolf – but done in a rootsier electric mode that's similar to his earlier forays for the label! The set's from the years when Chess was backing off that great funk approach they brought to blues work at the end of the 60s – kind of a "back to basics" ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Howlin WolfHowlin Wolf/Moanin In The Moonlight – Two In One ... CD
Chess, 1959. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 blues classics from the great Howlin Wolf – back to back on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Howlin Wolf – a record that has Wolf tightening it up a bit from his earliest years at Chess, and moving into a groove that would forever make him one of the key artists to record for ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Howlin WolfMessage To The Young ... CD
Chess/Get On Down, 1971. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Funky blues work from Howlin Wolf – his key entry into the funked-up genre that Chess Records was cutting at the end of the 60s with other blues artists like Etta James, Bo Diddley, and Muddy Waters! As on records with those artists, Wolf's older modes are updated here for a hipper, younger ... read more CD

Elmore James/John BrimWhose Muddy Shoes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1950s. New Copy .... $13.99
A great entry in the Chess Heritage Series at the end of the 60s – one that features rare 50s Chicago recordings by Elmore James, plus some even more obscure sides by lesser-known singer John Brim! James' style is well known, and well-executed here – rough and raw, but with a good ... read more CD

JB LenoirNatural Man ... LP
Chess, Mid 50s. Sealed .... $11.99
A really great collection of Chess Records work by JB Lenoir – one of the more unusual singers on the Chicago scene at the time – and one with a sound that's pretty darn great all the way through! Lenoir's tone is a pitch or two up from most of his contemporaries – not as gritty ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Chess (Japan), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy .... $13.99
A comprehensive look at some great recordings from Little Walter – sides recorded for Chess Records from 1953 to 1963 – offering up a decade's worth of evolution in his style! But even at the start, Walter was better than most of his generation – a heck of a great harmonica ... read more CD

New Little WalterHate To See You Go (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Chess, 1950s. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Killer 50s work from the great Little Walter – tracks that show that he was of the greatest blues acts working for Chess Records at the time! Many of the numbers here are heavy on Walter's classic harmonica style, but they also feature plenty of rough-edged vocals with a nicely soulful ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New Muddy WatersBest Of Muddy Waters ... CD
Chess, Early 50s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Less a "best of" than an early full album that brings together some of Muddy Waters' earliest recordings for Chess – a great collection of early singles recorded in Chicago between 1950 and 1954! The work's relatively spare and rootsy overall – a great example of Chicago ... read more CD

New Muddy WatersCan't Get No Grindin ... CD
Chess/Traffic, 1973. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Muddy Waters can't get no grinding – but that's hardly a problem, given the strength of this sweet early 70s set! The album marks Muddy's return to more basic Chicago blues after his funky electric period on Chess – but the set's still got some of the trippier touches of a few years ... read more CD

Muddy WatersElectric Mud ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1968. New Copy .... $4.99 9.98
The funk-tinged, pyschedelic soul album from Muddy Waters – one that irritated many a blues purist in its day – but it's finally reaching its earned status as a leftfield gem! You know, in the immediate years after this one (and similar funky blues albums on Chess/Cadet) was released, ... read more CD

New Muddy WatersFathers & Sons ... LP
Chess, 1969. Used 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
One of the biggest albums of Muddy Waters' career – a key crossover effort that has Waters as the "father" working with "sons" Paul Butterfield and Michael Bloomfield! The style here is still quite rootsy overall – and the double-length session features one album ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Muddy WatersUnk In Funk ... CD
Chess/Get On Down, 1974. New Copy .... $12.99 14.98
Muddy Waters definitely put the "unk" in funk – although back in his day, the word meant something different than in the 70s! This set features some great late Muddy for Chess – produced in conjunction with Ralph Bass, Muddy's longtime associate in the studio, and done with a ... read more CD

Chess (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A great little collection of work that Sonny Boy Williamson recorded for Chess in the 50s and early 60s – presented here as one of the well-done archival packages that Chess was doing in the early 70s, as interest in their classics was coming back again. Most of the numbers here feature ... read more CD
