His Greatest Sides

LP (Item 394152) Chess, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 46

Raw, ragged, rough, and ready – killer early work by Bo Diddley, clearly in a class by itself! The Bo Diddley groove isn't blues, isn't soul, and isn't R&B – it's instead a mad blend of rhythm, scratchy guitar, and spontaneously playful vocals that few other singers could ever hope to touch. This 14 track set features some of Bo's best Chicago work from the late 50s – including "Who Do You Love", "Say Man", "Bo's Bounce", "Crackin Up", "Hey Bo Diddley", "Pretty Thing", "Bring It To Jerome", and "Diddley Daddy". (Canadian pressing on Quality.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Man, with a square guitar and a badass style of presentation, it's hard to imagine how Bo could manage to NOT be in the spotlight! The album, like all his early Chess sides, is a real cut above the usual R&B set – with all original tracks, a really self-contained approach, and a no-nonsen ... LP, Vinyl record album

Is it Fulsom or Fulson? We're not going to try and present ourselves as the authority, but what we can tell you is this collection features 27 tracks from the man, mostly raw blues, though a number of cuts are more produced, with full horn section and piano complementing Fulsom's guitar and vocals ...

Memphis Slim
Chess, Early 50s. Near Mint-
Really tremendous work from Memphis Slim – a set of early 50s recordings for Chess Records, most of which have a style that mixes equal parts jazz and blues! Slim's definitely got some bluesy phrasing in his piano, but he also echoes an older generation of jazz pianists too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Of Blues Harmonica
Argo, 1964. Near Mint-
With a record like this, it's clear that Shakey Horton's the soul of blues harmonica – if not the king as well! The album's filled with wonderful instrumentals that really focus Horton's talents strongly – not used just as flavoring or an occasional solo to spice up a tune – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+
Joe Turner returns to his roots, and lays down a fairly straight set of bluesy tunes from the old days of the Kansas City scene – done with a small jazz combo that includes work by Joe Newman, Lawrence Brown, Pete Brown, and Pete Johnson! After the raw hard R&B of Joe's bigger hit sides ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Makossa
Mainstream, 1973. Very Good+
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... LP, Vinyl record album
