Chess (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $9.99
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
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
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
Chess/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ Bo DiddleyDrive By Bo Diddley – Tales From The Funk Dimension 1970-1973 ... CD
Raven/Chess (Australia), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bo Diddley we already love you – but this set gives us another reason why! Although Bo's probably best known for his classic R&B work of the late 50s and early 60s, but during the 70s he also managed to cut some massively funky albums for Chess – working in the blues revival/funk ... read more CD

Bo DiddleyWhere It All Began ... LP
Chess, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

✨✧ Bo Diddley/Chuck BerryTwo Great Guitars ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ John Lee HookerHouse Of The Blues (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Chess, Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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! Most of the recordings here are from the early 50s, pulled together in a full LP at ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerJohn Lee Hooker Plays & Sings The Blues (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Chess, 1961. Near Mint- (reissue)... $19.99
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 ... Temporarily 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/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

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 CD

Chess/Get On Down, 1971. New Copy ... 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 CD
