✨✧ Chuck BerryLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 Diddley/Chuck BerryTwo Great Guitars ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Used ... 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

✨✧ Bo Diddley/Muddy Waters/Little WalterSuper Blues ... LP
Chess, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Lowell FulsomLowell Fulson – Chess Blues Masters Series ... LP
Chess, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
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

Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... LP
Chess, 1950s. Sealed ... $24.99
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. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Howlin WolfHis Greatest Sides Vol 1 (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
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 WolfHowlin Wolf (180 gram pressing) ... LP
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! The raspy, rootsy feel of earlier years is still in place – but the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A really well done collection of work recorded by Howlin Wolf for Chess – put together in the early 70s, but featuring sides from the 50s and 60s.

✨✧ Etta JamesAt Last (swirl colored vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Argo/Chess/Jackpot, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... 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
