✨✧ BaroquesBaroques (mono colored vinyl pressing) (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Chess/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more unusual albums issued on the legendary Chess Records label in the 60s – not the usual jazz, blues, or soul the imprint was known for – but a full length set by a pretty raw combo from the Milwaukee scene! The Baroques are maybe more garagey than their name might imply – with a searing, gritty sound that verges into psych at times – but which still keeps things tight, short, and nicely focused. The group does feature some electric harpsichord in a few spots – although not as much as The Left Banke – and titles include "Mary Jane", "Iowa A Girl's Name", "In Silver Light", "Purple Day", "Boop", "Love In A Circle", "Bicycle", "There's Nothing Left To Do But Cry", and the pretty great-titled "Musical Tribute To The Oscar Mayer Weiner Wagon". LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck BerryConcerto In B Goode (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $29.99
If you think that Chuck Berry only hit his heights at Chess Records, then get ready to change your mind – as this late 60s record for Mercury is quite a cooker! Side one has Berry working in a cool hybrid of blues and soul, but with some very weird production – handled by Chuck himself, with almost a nod towards the way that the younger generation was messing up electric blues a bit with their rock experiments. Chuck uses a bit of unusual echo here and there, but still nicely avoids any cliched attempts to cash in with a rock blues mode – and then on side two, he really gets crazy – by offering up a side-long song that runs for over 18 minutes in length – the mighty "Concerto In B Goode", which is one hell of a guitar-heavy jam! Other shorter titles include "Good Looking Woman", "It's Too Dark In There", "Put Her Down", and "My Woman". (Soul, Rock) CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Chuck BerryFrom St Louie To Frisco ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Sealed ... $28.99
The title might say "Frisco", but the album's a real back-to-basics record from Chuck Berry – produced by the man himself, with a lean, stripped-down vibe that almost goes back to his earlier work at Chess Records! There's definitely a few 60s soul currents in the mix, but in the best way possible – helping Berry mature his sound a bit, but without turning it towards any easy crossover gimmicks – which means that there's still a lot of bluesy elements at the core, and Chuck's charms really come through on both his vocals and guitar. Titles include "Louie To Frisco", "Ma Dear", "The Love I Lost", "Rock Cradle Rock", "Misery", and "I Can't Believe". (Soul, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed! Cover has a small cutout hole.)

K BytesI Adore Commodore – Computer Music Flash ... LP
Mondo Groove (Italy), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A naked guy, holding a Commodore computer – a image that gives you a very good idea of what to expect here! The songs are all instrumentals, made on the Commdore at a time when that computer was one of the hottest things going – and they're all sexy, slinky numbers that move between electro groove styles – sometimes with a bit of soundtrack drama, sometimes with more of a funky flair! Titles include "Omega Race", "Jupiter Lander", "Space Invaders", "Le Mans", "Solar Fox", "Sargon Chess", "Depth Charge", and "Blue Print". (Sound Library, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

Status QuoMessages From The Status Quo ... LP
Cadet, 1968. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Who'd have thought that Chess would be the US company to release this nice bit of groovy psych pop by Britain's Status Quo – but then again, who cares? Includes their fantastic track "Pictures Of Matchstick Men", plus "Ice In The Sun", "Elizabeth Dreams", "Sunny Cellophane Sky", and "Spicks & Specks". Groovy cover, too, with the band sitting on a pile of matchbooks! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cadet Concept pressing. Cover & label have a drill hole.)

VariousHangman's Blues – Prison Songs In Country Music 1956 to 1972 ... CD
Omni (Australia), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Country music is no stranger to the prison walls – not just because big stars like Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and David Allen Coe were all incarcerated at one time – but also because the theme of time in jail was a standard in the music, almost from the very start! This totally excellent set – put together by the same folks who gave us Hillbillies In Hell – skips the early years of country/prison songs, and picks up right during the early days of rock and roll – a time when hard living was harder than ever, and themes of incarceration were a well-established part of the country scene. Most of the numbers here are straight country tunes, but with a very dark edge – and they're mixed with some rawer rockers that really keep things interesting – as does the overall presentation of the music. Titles include a great version of the Harlan Howard-penned, Johnny Cash-popularized "The Wall", sung by Freddie Hart – plus "Jailer Jailer" by Jim Carter, "Crash Out" by Jaycee Hill, "Sixteen Hundred Miles" by Dee Mullins, "The Ballad of Carl Chessman" by Ronnie Hawkins, "Caryl Chessman" by Country Johnny Mathis, "The Chair" by Marty Robbins, "Run" by Stonewall Jackson", "Twelve Years On Death Row" by Hoyle Miller", "Ball & Chain" by Tommy Faile, "I Always Did Like Leavenworth" by George Kent, "The Eyes Of Death" by Danny Dill, "I Got Stripes" by Howard Crockett, "21 Miles To Lake Charles Prison" by Johnny Paycheck, and "(I Heard That) Lonesome Whistle by Porter Wagoner. (Folk/Country, Rock) CD
