✨✧ Bo DiddleyAnother Dimension ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... 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 CD

Bo DiddleyBig Bad Bo ... CD
Chess/Get On Down, 1974. Used ... $4.99
Heavy funk from the legendary Bo Diddley – one of his amazing comeback albums from the early 70s for Chess, all of which are plenty darn great!

✨✧ Bo DiddleyHis Greatest Sides ... LP
Chess, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP
Chess, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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

Bo Diddley/Chuck BerryTwo Great Guitars ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good ... $34.99
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! Vinyl is great overall, but has a short click on one track. Cover is nice too!)

A rootsy cover, and some rootsy blues to match – a fairly stripped down session from John Lee Hooker –- and one that mostly just features vocals and guitar, plus some occasional added guitar and piano!

✨✧ John Lee HookerJohn Lee Hooker Plays & Sings The Blues ... LP
Chess, 1961. Used ... 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

2 blues classics from the great Howlin Wolf – back to back on a single CD!

Chess, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily 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 LP, Vinyl record album
