✨✧ Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP
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

Bo Diddley/Muddy Waters/Little WalterSuper Blues ... LP
Chess, 1967. Very Good- ... $24.99
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

Chess, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99

Most of the recordings here are from the early 50s, pulled together in a full LP at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ Howlin WolfMessage To The Young ... LP
Chess, 1971. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Howlin WolfMoanin In The Moonlight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Chess, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic raspy vocals from the legendary Howlin Wolf – singing here in a way that definitely lives up to his nickname! The sound here is spare and stripped down, with very little accompaniment – usually just a bit of guitar, piano, bass, and drums – and sometimes not even all that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Etta JamesAt Last (plus bonus tracks) (green vinyl pressing) (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Argo/Chess/Jackpot, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... On August 26, 2016
Wonderfully sophisticated soul from Etta James – a real departure from the raw shouting R&B of earlier years, and perfectly set to sparkling arrangements by the great Riley Hampton (who'd had similar success with Walter Jackson, Lorez Alexandria, and other Chicago soul stars.) Hampton's ... (Soul, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Muddy WatersUnk In Funk ... LP
Chess, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Muddy Waters definitely put the "unk" in funk – although back in his day, the word meant something different than in the 70s!
