✨✧ Bo DiddleyBo Diddley's Beach Party ... LP
Chess, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bo Diddley/Chuck BerryTwo Great Guitars ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Sealed ... $59.99
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

Chess, Mid 60s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... LP
Chess, 1950s. Sealed ... $29.99
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

Buddy GuyI Was Walking Through The Woods ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
Buddy Guy reached much bigger fame on later labels, but he sounds pretty darn great here in a set of early recordings done for Chess – all sides recorded in the first half of the 60s, when Buddy represented one of the best talents in a new generation of bluesmen rising up in Chicago! The ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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

Chess, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
About as classic as you can get for blues on Chess – a key early album from Howlin Wolf, featuring an array of great original tunes, all set to very spare accompaniment.

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 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!
