✨✧ Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Gunslinger (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Geffen/Chess, 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album! Bo might have gotten saddled (no pun intended!) with a silly gimmick for the title and image of the set – but the album's one of his best from the early Chess years, and features a rip-roaring ... read more CD

Bo Diddley/Chuck BerryTwo Great Guitars ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $29.99
Killer stuff – and way different than albums by both players – especially Chuck Berry! Each side has one long track – one in "Chuck's Beat", one in "Bo's Beat" – in which each guitarist is given the chance to really stretch out and do his thing alongside ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(60s Checker piece label pressing – nice and heavy!)

✨✧ Bo Diddley/Muddy Waters/Little WalterSuper Blues ... LP
Chess, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label mono promo with deep groove – in beautiful shape!)

Lowell FulsomLowell Fulson – Chess Blues Masters Series ... LP
Chess, Mid 60s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 70s pressing! Cover has a cuotut mark.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... LP
Chess, 1950s. Sealed ... $49.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lee HookerJohn Lee Hooker Plays & Sings The Blues ... LP
Chess, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
About as pure as you can get for John Lee Hooker – a classic set of cuts for Chess, recorded with a feel that's almost folksy at times! The guitar has a raw edge that goes way back to the delta – and the overall approach is much more gritty than even some of Hooker's labelmates at the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Howlin WolfHis Greatest Sides Vol 1 (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Chess/Jackpot, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The title definitely gets it right – as this 70s collection brings together most of the best Chess Records material by Howlin Wolf from the late 50s and early 60s – almost all of them small combo sides that present the man in all of his raspy, growling glory! The tracks span a space ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Howlin WolfHowlin Wolf (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Chess/Friday Music, 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 29.98
Howlin Wolf is really getting into his thing here – 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 the label! The raspy, rootsy feel of earlier years is still in place – but the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Howlin WolfLondon Sessions ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1989. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A famous date that showcases the Chess Records influence on the sound of the Brit rock scene – one that has a number of key players "giving back" to the label, and working on a special date with Howlin Wolf! Wolf's rough vocals are in the lead on all tracks, and he also plays a bit ... read more CD

✨✧ Howlin WolfMessage To The Young ... LP
Chess, 1971. Used ... 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 LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Howlin WolfReal Folk Blues ... CD
Chess, 1966. Used ... $3.99
Classic work from Howlin Wolf – tunes recorded with incredibly raspy vocals, set to a folksy electric guitar sound – one that instantly conjures up images of the south side blues scene that Chess documented so well during the 50s and 60! The work here was recorded over a number of ... read more CD

Etta JamesAt Last (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Argo/Chess, 1960. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
An amazing step forward for the young Etta James – a singer who was delivering a raw, shouting form of R&B just a few years before – but who here ascends into soul music heaven with her famous work on the album! The title cut is the stuff of legend – played and played, again ... (Soul, Blues) read more CD

Little MiltonLittle Milton's Greatest Hits ... LP
Chess, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Excellent 60s work from Little Milton – one of the few Chicago bluesmen of the 60s we actually dig! Milton always had a good deal of soul in his blues, and on these standout 60s tracks he really takes off – bridging worlds nicely, and crossing over to audiences who were digging sounds ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little WalterBoss Blues Harmonica ... LP
Chess, 1960s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A pretty nice little 2LP set – put together in the early 70s, and featuring material that Walter recorded for Chess during the 60s. As the title would imply, there's a lot of harmonica on the album – but Walter's vocals should also be given their due, as they're a bit more in the soul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
