Socking soul from the legendary Chess Records – presented in a format that always served the label best! This very limited box features seven 45s – each of which contains two great grooves from Chess – the kind of upbeat, uptempo soul that made the Chicago scene of the 60s second only to Detroit for groovers this great! Yet we almost like this material even better than the sounds of Motown – as Chess always had something interesting going on – some compelling arrangements, unusual touches, and a range of influences that really show up on the music within – a range of cuts that include some of our favorite
45s from the legendary label. Titles include "A Whole New Plan" by Jo Ann Garrett, "A Love Reputation" by Denise LaSalle, "My Square" by Jackie Ross, "You Got Me Baby" by Bobby McClure, "You Were Just Foolin Me" by Terry Callier, "Make It Last" by The Vibrations, "Two In The Morning" by Spooner's Crowd, "More Love That's What We Need" by The Gospel Classics, "Head Over Heels" by Greg Perry, "A Mighty Good Lover" by The Vashonettes, "Wade In The Water" by Marlena Shaw, "Must I Holler" by Jamo Thomas, and "Why Can't I Be Your Man" by The Chessmen.
