✨✧ Bo DiddleyAnother Dimension ... LP
Chess, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Gunslinger (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Geffen/Chess, 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album! Bo might have gotten saddled (no pun intended!) with a silly gimmick for the title and image of the set – but the album's one of his best from the early Chess years, and features a rip-roaring ... read more CD

Buddy GuyI Left My Blues In San Francisco (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1969. Used ... $8.99
Not the Bay Area effort you might guess from the title – and instead a sweet Chicago session that's easily one of the funkiest records that Buddy Guy ever cut! There's a great mix of funk and soul mixed in with the blues – thanks to arrangements from Charles Stepney and Gene Barge, who ... read more CD

✨✧ Buddy GuyI Was Walking Through The Woods ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily 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!

✨✧ Howlin WolfBack Door Wolf (with bonus track) ... CD
Chess, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Later Chess work by Howlin Wolf, but done in a rootsier electric mode that's similar to his earlier forays for the label! The set's from the years when Chess was backing off that great funk approach they brought to blues work at the end of the 60s – kind of a "back to basics" ... read more CD

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!

Chess/Friday Music, 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 29.98
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!

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!
