Tony ClarkePoor Boy/Fugitive Kind ... 7-inch
Chess, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
2 nice numbers from Tony Clarke – best known for "The Entertainer", but a really great singer who cut some fine singles for Chess! "Poor Boy" is as sad as it sounds – a downbeat number that has Tony singing in a good mix of deep and sweet styles! "Fugitive Kind" is wonderful too – with a groove that's a bit like Tony's hit, but a bit more contemplative – just great for the lyric! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Wonderful Chicago soul from The Dells! "There Is" is a strident Charles Stepney track, with insane production, and a hook that just won't quit! "O-O, I Love You" is much more in their older harmony style, and has a very classic group sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chess, Late 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
A great early single by Monk! Both sides are instrumental – and feature his lusty tenor work honking in and out of nice choppy funk grooves. "How Come?" has a good spacey sound, with great production and some really nice organ work. "Different Strokes" has a choppy vamp sound to it, and there's a nice jangly guitar solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

2 fantastic tracks from Etta James – both of them raw and bluesy, but also sophisticatedly soulful! "At Last" is one of her all-time greats, a sweetly done number that always breaks our heart, set to impeccable arrangements that show that Etta can move from the rough R&B crowd with ease. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chess, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Great early work from Laura Lee – recorded in Muscle Shoals before her later work with Hot Wax! "Wanted" is a great little groover – a light bit of funk in the rhythm, and a jumping groove that pushes Laura's vocals over the top, singing a very catchy lyric in the "want ad" mode! "Up Tight Good Man" is her great version of the Penn/Oldham southern soul classic – done in a slowly burning style that brings out all the charm of the tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

RadiantsIda Mae Foster/Choo Choo ... 7-inch
Chess, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Great work by The Radiants – arranged here by Charles Stepney, with a tripped-out sound that's like the best late 60s work by The Dells! "Ida Mae Foster" is a real bit of psychedelic soul, with guitars coming down on the beat, fuzzing things up along with a really loud cello, while the group works Bobby Miller's lyrics with some raw harmonies that are almost perfect! "Choo Choo" is a bit poppier, and like their earlier work – but the cut has one monster hook that's totally worth it! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Andre WilliamsStroke/Cadillac Jack ... 7-inch
Chess/Blue Chip, Late 60s/1970s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Funky late 60s work from the great Andre Williams – reissued here on a Chess Blue Chip pressing from the 70s! "The Stroke" is one of Andre's greatest numbers – a slapping funky groover with twangy guitar over bass over drums, all supporting a groove that's got Andre talking his way through the tune, bad-rapping in that unique style that's always made him one of our favorites! "Cadillac Jack" is a bit slower and chuggier – with a similar style, but done in more of a bluesy mode. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two funky nuggets from the rare album that organist Reuben Wilson cut with a funk group for Chess Records in the 70s! "Got To Get Your Own" is fantastic – with a really unusual rhythm, and a sweet keyboard line that dips along beautifully with the bassline and vocals! "Tight Money" is tighter and snappier – and a great funk cut too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ RadiantsI'm Just A Man/Tears Of A Clown ... 7-inch
Chess, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Two great tracks by the Radiants – with a sound that's a bit different than most of their other work. Charles Stepney arranged both sides – and you can hear his influence especially on "I'm Just A Man", which has this compelling marching groove at the beginning, which then leads to breakaway vocals with a really soulful feel, and a strange dark sound! "Tears Of A Clown" isn't the Motown hit, but another number with a nice moody sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Muddy WatersManish Boy/Young Fashioned Ways ... 7-inch
Chess/Third Man, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Maybe one of the most famous Muddy Waters songs ever recorded – served up here in all its fantastically raw glory! The tune's got Waters playing a famous electric guitar vamp that may well have become the blueprint for countless bar bands to come – but serving up the lyrics with a wit that none of them could ever hope to manage – all urged on by this wild girl chorus that really gives the tune an odd edge! And "Young Fashioned" is great, too – a bit tighter, and with a mean harmonica part in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful reissue pressing – even in a vintage-style Chess sleeve!)

Stompin organ work from the great Baby Cortez! "Fiddle Sticks" is a lot harder than Dave's earlier hits – with some really searing Hammond, and a tone that almost sets your platter on fire! There's lots of raspy guitar backing him up – kind of chugging in an R&Bish mode! "Happy Weekend" is a romping groover too – rolling almost in a Bo Diddley mode, with Dave burning the organ over the top! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Yellow & red label pressing. Label on "Fiddle Sticks" is clipped at the bottom.)

Checker, Late 60s. Very Good ... $8.99
2 great duets from the team of Fontella and Bobby – one of the lesser known pairs to record in the style for Chess! Both cuts are hard-hitting, sock-soul numbers – really grooving with a blend of southern deep and Chicago hard – coming off well in a mode that brings out the best in both singers! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Maurice & MacLean On Me/Why Don't You Try Me ... 7-inch
Checker, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
Great work from the team of Maurice and Mac – an obscure late 60s hard-soul team with an approach that was a lot like James & Bobby Purify! This one's even better – as the record was produced and played by Rick Hall and the Fame studios staff – who give both sides a fantastic deep soul approach that really suits the great vocals of the pair! "Why Don't You Try Me" has a soaring organ at the beginning, and a nice rolling groove that features Maurice and Mac trading off on the vocal parts! 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of the greatest "Happy Birthday" songs of all times – a male/female harmony number, sung in a sad, slow style that makes the tune much more of a tear-jerker than you might think from the title! The track's one of the greatest ever by the Tuneweavers, and it's backed by a nice jazzed-up version of "Ol Man River"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Madness from Andre – a side that you don't often hear on record! "Mrs Mother" is kind of a tongue in cheek dedication to mothers everywhere – done with Andre speaking over the top of a sad and bluesy strings-drenched backing! A nice one to buy for your mom in May! "Cadillac Jack" is a vamping number that hints at funk, but which kind of sticks into a bluesy mode – Andre talking again over the top, using a great raspy sort of vocal to tell the story of Cadillac Jack! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Chess sleeve with some splitting in the bottom seam, including jukebox strips.)
