A side each of these two important talents in blues – presented here in a format that makes the record a real double-header! Side one features Big Bill Broonzy in the lead – working with sweet electric lines on guitar alongside acoustic and his own really rich vocals – plus this ... read more CD

Bo DiddleyAnother Dimension ... CD CD format
Chess (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
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 ... LP LP format
Chess, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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! For this set, Bo's traded in the scratchy guitar mode of his classic work for a sweeter, tighter funk-based sound – a groove that's supported ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley's Beach Party (180 gram vinyl mono version) ... LP LP format
Chess/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy ... $18.99 24.98
You might need to be a Diddley diehard to know it, given the pretty hokey early 60s Beach Party cover photo – get past that and what you'll find is a rowdy, rumbling and completely incredible live album from Bo! It features material captured on a 2 night stand at The Beach Club in Myrtle ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(In "glorious Distort-O-Phonic mono"!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
New Bo DiddleyHis Greatest Sides ... LP LP format
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
(80s pressing, sealed.)

New Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP LP format
Chess, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Chess/Get On Down, 1967. New Copy ... 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 CD

Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... LP LP format
Chess, 1950s. Sealed ... $9.99
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

Howlin WolfHowlin Wolf (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Chess/Friday Music, 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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

New Howlin WolfLondon Sessions ... LP LP format
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

Howlin WolfMessage To The Young ... CD CD format
Chess/Get On Down, 1971. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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 CD

A comprehensive look at some great recordings from Little Walter – sides recorded for Chess Records from 1953 to 1963 – offering up a decade's worth of evolution in his style! But even at the start, Walter was better than most of his generation – a heck of a great harmonica ... read more CD
