A classic compilation of "oldies", put together back in the day when most of the tunes were only a few years old! The compilation was done by Chess in conjunction with Chicago pop powerhouse station WLS – and it's got a great goofy photo on the front that features all of the young rock DJs at LS in front of a large silver dollar! Titles include "But I Do" by Clarence Henry, "So Fine" by The Fiestas, "A Thousand Stars" by Kathy Young, "Money" by Barrett Strong, "Tonight I Fell In Love" by The Tokens, and "Oh Julie" by The Crescendos.

✨✧ Rory GallagherCleveland Calling (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Chess, 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real gem for fans of Rory Gallagher – and a very unique recording that sees the light of day here for the first time ever! The set features Rory playing acoustic, doing a performance in a radio studio in Cleveland in 1972 – a very different setting than some of his albums of the period, and one that shows just what a completely charming individual he could be in a close-up setting! Titles include "Bankers Blues", "The Cuckoo", "Gypsy Woman", "Out Of My Mind", "Pistol Slapper Blues", "Don't Know Where I'm Going", "Blow Wind Blow", and "Should've Learned My Lesson".

✨✧ Howlin WolfLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1970. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
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 of harmonica and guitar as well – and other artists include Steve Winwood on piano and organ, Eric Clapton on guitar, Bill Wyman on bass, and Charlie Watts on drums – all players who are respectful of the original bluesy sound of Chess, and who clearly dig the opportunity to show off their chops in the setting. Titles include "I Ain't Superstitious", "Poor Boy", "Do The Do", "Red Rooster", "Built For Comfort", "What A Woman", "Highway 49", "Who's Been Talking", and "Rocking Daddy". (Blues, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby CharlesAlligators, Sprockets, & Bended Knees ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 16.99
A huge collection of work from the great Bobby Charles – a sometimes-overlooked figure in late 50s music, but a key force in developing the sound of Louisiana at the time! Bobby hailed from the cajun part of the state, but also drank heavily from the R&B that was brewing up in New Orleans – and the records within are part of a fantastic genre-crossing legacy that's always gotten Charles equal interest from fans of older rock and soul! The package is very heavy on key material that Bobby recorded for Chess Records, including a number of tracks that were not issued at the time – and the set also features some later singles for Imperial, which continue the kind of Crescent City soulfulness that Bobby really helped forge with a few key contemporaries as the start of a much bigger legacy to come. The set features 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "Oh Yeah", "Since She's Gone", "Watch It Sprocket", "I'm A Fool To Care", "Mr Moon", "Ain't Got No Home", "Laura Lee", "Take It Easy Greasy", "One Eyed Jack", "No More", "You Can Suit Yourself", "On Bended Knee", "Hey Good Lookin", "Why Did You Leave", "Your Picture", "Good Lovin", "Those Eyes", and "What A Party". Also includes a few bonus tracks that show Bobby's influence on other artists – tracks by Fats Domino, Clarence Henry, John Fred, and Bill Haley. CD

Siegel Schwall BandSiegel-Schwall '70 ... CD
Vanguard/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
The Siegel Schwall Band change things up a bit here – leaving behind the rootsy Sam Charters production of their first few albums for the the heady sound of Dunwich – and picking up just a bit of electric piano and electric bass in the process! The style is still rooted in blues, but maybe not as slavishly tied to the modes of Chess Records as before – as the group, especially Corky Siegel, seem to be coming up with lyrical modes that are maybe a bit more of a nod to the north side crowds that were really cheering them on in Chicago – not mainstream, certainly, but maybe a bit more longhaired than south side juke joint crowds – almost a bit of a Bay Area vibe in the mix. Titles include "Angel Food Cake", "Song", "A Sunshine Day In My Mind", "Do You Remember", "I Don't Want You To Be My Girl", and "Geronimo". CD

✨✧ Bobby CharlesBobby Charles (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Bearsville/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A near-perfect classic from the greatly under-appreciated Bobby Charles – a cat with who worked for Chess Records as far back as the 50s, but also managed to deliver this soul-drenched swamp rock gem in 1972! Bobby's got this great sense of delivery – a bit laidback and almost laconic, without some of the other cliches of some of his contemporaries – this mode that makes you feel like you're just happening upon the man in his best spirits – even though the record's filled with top-shelf work from a super-pro lineup that includes Dr John, Geoff Muldaur, Levon Helm, Rick Danco, and others. Danko and John Simon helped produce with Bobby – and the album's got the same sort of blend of southern rock, soul, and roots that you'd also find in the best work by Tony Joe White. Titles include "Street People", "Long Face", "I Must Be In A Good Place Now", "Let Yourself Go", "Grow Too Old", "I'm That Way", and "Tennessee Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great super-heavy gatefold pressing – remastered from the original tapes!)

✨✧ Wayne CochranGoin Back To Miami – The Soul Sides 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Hey, don't hold Wayne Cochran's hair against him – because he's one massively soulful dude, despite a high white pompadour – and really knew how to rock the clubs back in the 60s! Cochran's a really unique figure – working with a look that was whiter-than-white, but coming across with a groove that was right up there in the best funky soul mode of the time! Wayne played for the same sort of crowds that went to see Baby Huey & The Babysitters – blending together soul and R&B influences with a really party-oriented groove laid down by his legendary CC Riders backup group – and crossing countless borders along the way, all in pursuit of a socking soul sound! This wonderful set is the best we've ever seen on his music – and features tracks pulled from his sessions for King, Chess, and Mercury – plus a full never-issued live album for King, titled The Wayne Cochran Show. There's more than a few covers here of other 60s soul tunes, but Wayne somehow manages to make most of them sound even better than the originals – bringing in funky arrangements that weren't even used on the hits, and making us wish we'd had a chance to catch his cooking show back in the day. 38 tracks in all – with titles that include "Dance To The Music", "Hold On I'm Coming", "Fa Fa Fa Fa Fa (Sad Song)", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Hard To Handle", "Chopper 70", "Everybody", "Let Me Come With You", "My Machine", "Get Ready", "Which One Should I Choose", "I'm In Trouble", "The Peak Of Love", "Somebody Please", "I'm Leaving It Up To You", and "Big City Woman". (Soul, Rock) CD

Mark MorrissTaste Of Mark Morriss ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2015. Used ... $0.99
Solo work from Mark Morriss – formerly a member of The Bluetones, but maybe even more striking here as an artist on his own! The album features a compelling mix of covers – songs originally recorded by Jess Conrad, Scott Walker, OMD, Buffalo Springfield, Jesus & Mary Chain, Weezer, and even Madonna – but all given a very personal spin by Morriss! Mark's got this way of weaving together different 60s influences – a bit of blue-eyed pop, touches of mod or psych instrumentation, even some slightly folksy currents – all to suit the modes of the individual songs – with a mode that maybe even gets past the idea of any sort of single style for the record. Titles include "Duchess", "Self Control", "Angel", "Almost Gold", "Don't Let Go", "Love Comes Quickly", "Rock & Roll Woman", "Souvenir", "This Pullover", and "Lucretia (My Reflection)". CD
(Still sealed.)

UnderdogsWasting Our Time ... LP
Pye/Wah Wah (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A heady second set from New Zealand's Underdogs – a record that has the group reduced to a trio, yet somehow finding even more power in their overall sound! There's a nicely thoughtful approach to the music – not some of the full-on hard rock of other power trios of the time, but instead a balance between roots and more freewheeling moments – the latter of which really take over on the album's closer, a monstrous 10 minute jam! The record echoes some of the blues/hard styles of the UK scene of the time, but also has a personality that's very much its own – maybe because the whole thing was cooked up in far away Auckland. Titles include "Tomorrow's Child", "Garden Of Eden", "Clover In The Air", "Is He Going To Die", "It's A Blessing", "Old Grey Dog", "Name The Day", and "Duchess Of Montrose". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500! Great reissue – in a flipback cover, like the original.)

✨✧ VariousDouble Whammy – A 1960s Garage Rock Rave-Up (blue vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Craft, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A well-chosen batch of rare garage rock gems from the 60s – rare work from labels that include Stax, Fantasy, Original Sound, and Vanguard – including three never-issued tracks! The choice of material is great, and the whole thing features notes from producer Alec Palao – a name we've really come to trust for sets like this, which go way past the hits and obvious choices. Titles include "Can't Get Enough" by The Pullice, "Attention" by Lonnie Duvall, "Harmonica Man" by The Torquays, "Psychotic Reaction (unedited version)" by Count Five, "She's Gone" by Group B, "Double Whammy" by Jack Bedient & The Chessmen, "In The Night" by The Bittersweets, "Short Haired Fathers" by Circus Maximus, "Anytime Anywhere" by The Squires, "This Calls For A Celebration" by The Fantastic Zoo, "Rat Race" by The Tears, "I Can't Make A Friend" by The Vagrants, "The Animal In Me" by The Orfuns, and "The People In Me (full length version)" by The Music Machine.
