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 Is A Gunslinger (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Geffen/Chess, 1960. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album!

✨✧ Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... CD
Chess, 1950s. Used ... 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 CD

Paul GaytenChess King Of New Orleans ... LP
Chess, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the first great R&B artists on the New Orleans scene in the 50s – and one who never got the same sort of fame as some of his contemporaries!

Chess/Friday Music, 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily 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!
