Chuck BerryLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1972. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Chuck Berry makes the same London move as some of his other Chess Records contemporaries – and the result is one of Chuck's best albums from the later years! The set's not as star-studded as other efforts of this nature – but that's fine with us because Chuck really shines as the lead ... (Soul, Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP
Chess, 1972. Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
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
(Orange label pressing in the original die-cut gatefold cover, with call letters in marker, some ring & edge wear, and lightly bent corners.)

Chess/MCA, 1967. Used ... $14.99
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 CD

✨✧ Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... LP
Chess, 1950s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Chess, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... 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)... Temporarily 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)... Out Of Stock
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 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

Howlin WolfMore Real Folk Blues ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1967. Used ... $6.99
A much earlier set of tracks than the first volume of Real Folk Blues from Howlin Wolf – mostly material recorded in the mid 50s, both in Chicago and Memphis – all with a really nitty gritty sort of feel! There's a rough and rootsy mode going on here – one that has Wolf's raspy ... read more CD

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 (swirl colored vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Argo/Chess/Jackpot, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Chess, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent 60s work from Little Milton – one of the few Chicago bluesmen of the 60s we actually dig!
