Dave Baby CortezFiddle Sticks/Happy Week End ... 7-inch
Chess, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $2.99
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

Bo DiddleyGot My Own Bag Of Tricks ... LP
Chess, Late 50s/1960s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $24.99
A nice little collection of Bo Diddley's earlier work for Chess – put together in the early 70s, when Bo was in his Black Gladiator phase, as pictured on the cover – but featuring the rawer, rougher grooves of his initial recordings in the late 50s and early 60s! The Bo Diddley groove hardly needs an introduction from us – and the 24 tracks on the set are a perfect illustration of his blinding mix of fast rhythms, choppy guitar, and comical vocals – a sound that made Bo's work some of the most striking R&B of the time! Titles include "I'm Man", "Pretty Thing", "Before You Accuse Me", "Who Do You Love", "Hey Bo Diddley", "Say Man", "I'm Looking For A Woman", "Road Runner", "Cops & Robbers", "Story Of Bo Diddley", and "Hush Your Mouth".

Lowell FulsonHung Down Head ... LP
Chess, 1950s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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 often comes across with some of those more sly, more wicked moments that have always made Fulson one of our favorites – almost a slightly jazz or funk undercurrent at points, and a bit different than the regular Chess groove. Titles include "Do Me Right", "Trouble Trouble", "Hung Down Head", "Tollin Bells", "Low Society", "Check Yourself", "That's All Right", and "I Want To Know". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Etta JamesCome A Little Closer ... LP
Chess, 1974. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An excellent set of messed-up funky soul from Etta James – one of her killer early 70s sides for Chess! The album mixes together bluesy tracks and straight ahead soul – in a hip, bad-walking style that nicely updates Etta's older style for the 70s. The set includes a great funky cut called "Out On The Street Again", which sounds like it should be the theme to some blacksploitation film because it's got these cool strings, and a nice hard groove. Other cuts include "Power Play", "Mama Told Me", "You Give Me What I Want", and "Come A Little Closer". LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ Jimmy RogersChicago Bound ... LP
Chess, 1950s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
The title's an apt one here, as Jimmy Rogers was one of the many bluesmen who started out in the south, but headed to Chicago for greater fame – which was a good thing for Chess Records, who managed to come some of these great sides in the 50s! Rogers both sings and plays guitar – the later of which has a sometimes snakey quality that almost echoes a slight bit of jazz – a mode that recalls some of the inventions T Bone Walker was putting down at the time, but a little bit rootsier overall. Players on these sessions include Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon – and tracks include "Money Marbles & Chalk", "Ludella", "You're The One", "Back Door Friend", "I Used To Have A Woman", "Sloppy Drunk", "Blues Leave Me Alone", and "Walking By Myself".

✨✧ Billy StewartBilly Stewart Teaches Old Standards New Tricks ... LP
Chess, 1966. Very Good ... $3.99
This was the follow-up LP to Billy Stewart's huge single of Gershwin's "Summertime", and it's got a similar approach of "funky soul takes on American pop music standards". "Summertime" isn't on the album, but all the tracks have a sound that falls in the same mode – with fantastic vocal pyrotechnics from Billy, and tight arrangements by Phil Wright that both groove hard, but have a sophisticated classy edge. Titles include "Temptation", "Who Can I Turn To", "Let's Fall In Love", "Exodus", "Fly Me to the Moon", and "Secret Love". Also includes a great version of "Every Day I Have the Blues", with a nice hard funky drum intro! LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ Chuck BerrySan Francisco Dues ... LP
Chess, Early 70s. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the weirdest Chuck Berry albums ever – and one of the greatest, too! The sound here is very different than the hard rockin Berry of the early days – and the record's got kind of a laidback, trippy, and slightly bluesy approach – one that has Chuck singing in these homey vocals we really love, and playing guitar with this kind of watery tone that's really unique – almost airy, but still with a bit of bite – and really quite hard to peg! Backing is relatively spare – electric and acoustic piano, rhythm guitar, bass, and drums – and the whole thing is very rootsy, with tracks that include "Your Lick", "Festival", "Bordeux In My Pirough", "My Dream", "Viva Rock & Roll", "Lonely School Days", and "Let's Do Our Thing Together".

Chess, 1959. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic raspy vocals from the legendary Howlin Wolf – singing here in a way that definitely lives up to his nickname! The sound here is spare and stripped down, with very little accompaniment – usually just a bit of guitar, piano, bass, and drums – and sometimes not even all that much! Wolf's vocals are wonderful throughout – archetypal, but not nearly as cliched as some of his contemporaries came to sound – with a timeless feel that really holds up throughout. Titles include "Smokestack Lightnin", "No Place To Go", "All Night Boogie", "Evil", "I Asked For Water", "Forty Four", and "Somebody In My Home". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Muddy WatersFathers & Sons ... LP
Chess, 1969. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the biggest albums of Muddy Waters' career – a key crossover effort that has Waters as the "father" working with "sons" Paul Butterfield and Michael Bloomfield! The style here is still quite rootsy overall – and the double-length session features one album recorded in the studio, and a second done live at the Super Cosmic Joy-Scout Jamboree – key evidence of the growing hippie audience for blues like this! The core group features Waters on vocals with Otis Spann on piano, Mike Bloomfield on guitar, Paul Butterfield on harmonica, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Sam Lay on drums – and guest players include Phil Upchurch on bass and Buddy Miles on drums – each on one number. Titles include "All Aboard", "Mean Disposition", "Forty Days & Forty Nights", "Sugar Sweet", "Twenty Four Hours", "I'm Ready", "Walkin Thru The Park", "Got My Mojo Working (parts 1 & 2)", "The Same Thing", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "Honey Bee". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing in the gatefold cover, with some surface wear, light stains, and small splits in the spine.)

✨✧ Etta JamesEtta James (1973) ... LP
Chess, 1973. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from the great Etta James – one of her standout classics from the later Chess years, done with a style that's completely different than her work of the 60s! The set was recorded in LA with a super-dope sound that's almost in a funky soundtrack mode – full horns, bits of strings, wah wah guitar, and a core tight rhythm combo that features keyboards from William D Smith, percussion from King Errison, and lots of stepping bass from Chuck Rainey! And while funky, the style isn't as rough and ready as some of the other Chess funky blues from the late 60s Chicago years – showing instead a bit more of a soul influence in the mix, at a level that Etta matches beautifully with her vocals. Titles include "All The Way Down", "Only A Fool", "Down So Low", "Lay Back Daddy", "Just One More Day", and a version of "Leave Your Hat On" with a great funky keyboard break! LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Gene Ammons & Sonny StittJug & Sonny (jug & corn cover) ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A nice little album – featuring some of the sides that Gene Ammons cut "off contract" for Chess/Argo during the early 60s, and ones that feature him paired with Sonny Stitt, his longtime partner in legendary tenor battles from the 50s. The two horns aren't really locked in combat here, but they do complement each other nicely on the album's mellow groovers and ballad tracks. Titles include "Cha Bootie", "Tenor Eleven", "The Last Mile", and "Full Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label Chess pressing! Cover has a split bottom seam.)

WVON/Chess, 1969. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Legendary compilation album of 60s soul tracks, put together by the staff of Chicago radio station WVON, in loving tribute to Leonard Chess, of Chess Records, who owned the station. The package has nice photos of the station's DJs on the back – including Herb "Kool Gent" Kent, E. Rodney Jones, and Don "Soul Train" Cornelius. The titles are darn nice, too – and include "Sophisticated Cissy" by The Meters, "But It's Alright" by JJ Jackson, "Hypnotized" by Linda Jones, "Uh Uh Boy That's A No No" by Candy Love, and "Stay In My Corner" by the Dells.

Clea BradfordHer Point Of View ... LP
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+ ... $28.99
Clea was one of a host of hip female singers that Chess was trying to bring up in the late 60s – and although she was less successful than bigger stars like Fontella Bass or Marlena Shaw, this album's in very much the same mode as some of the best Cadet female soul, with arrangements by Richard Evans that cover the same range of styles as Shaw's best early work. The album kicks off with the funky cut "My Love's A Monster", then rolls into hip jazzy versions of "Summer Time", "What Is This Thing Called Love", and "Spring Is Here" – and also includes two originals, "I Need Love" and "The View From Up Here", both with a strong stepping groove!

James BrownPrisoner Of Love ... LP
King, 1963. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A classic early 60s set from James Brown – one that showcases the mellower side of his talents on a host of easygoing ballads! The approach is a bit like that used with Etta James over at Chess – as James rough-edged vocals are mixed with sweeter string arrangements from Sammy Lowe and Gene Redd – never too overdone, but filled with a great sense of sadness and loss that unlocks a whole new side of Brown's talents! "Prisoner Of Love" is a gem from the time that's almost James' equivalent to Etta's "At Last" – and the rest of the album follows in a similar mode, but also picks up the pace slightly near the end. Titles include "Prisoner Of Love", "Try Me", "So Long", "Waiting In Vain", "Lost Someone", and "Can You Feel It" – plus the groovy instrumental "The Thing In G", which is an early JB organ showcase! LP, Vinyl record album
(80s French pressing in fantastic shape!)

✨✧ Chambers BrothersShout ... LP
Vault, 1968. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Plenty of echoes of Chess, King, and Atlantic Records here – a late 60s live performance by the Chambers Brothers – but one that's already retro-styled towards modes from earlier in the decade, and styles from the R&B years of the 50s! As with all the group's Vault LPs, the sound here is much rougher than the more psychedelic soul of their Columbia albums – a mode that's plenty darn righteous, and which is presented on live tracks for side one, but which also features more studio material and a few original compositions on side two. Titles include "Blues Get Off My Shoulder", "I Got It", "Shout", "There She Goes", "Seventeen", "Rained The Day You Left", and "So Fine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Buck Clayton & Buddy TateBuck & Buddy Blow The Blues ... LP
Prestige/Swingville, 1961. Very Good- ... $9.99
A romping little session from Buck Clayton and Buddy Tate – served up in a looser, more relaxed setting than the former's albums for Columbia, and a slightly more swing-based mode than the latter's dates for Chess! Both horn players get plenty of room to solo in the open-ended Swingville mode – Buck on trumpet and Buddy on both tenor and clarinet – and the group's a nice one too, since Sir Charles Thompson's playing piano, Gene Ramey's on bass, and Gus Johnson's on drums. Titles include "Blue Creek", "Blue Breeze", "Blue Ebony", "Rompin At Red Bank", and "Dallas Delight". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Higgins TrioSoulero ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A great 60s album from pianist Eddie Higgins – one of his few records for Atlantic, and a set that definitely lives up to the seductive power of the title and cover! Eddie's maybe a bit more creative and open here than on some of his other records – more in a Chess Records trio mode than especially his later, more lyrical sides – with great work on rhythm from Richard Evans on bass and Marshall Thompson on drums! The album really reflects Higgins' placement on the Chicago scene of the 60s – and he's got a surprisingly strong left-handed groove at times – on titles that include "Soulero", "Tango Africaine", "Mr Evans","Love Letters", and "Shelly's World". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing.)

Jimmy HughesSteal Away ... LP
Vee Jay, 1964. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Stellar work by Jimmy Hughes – one of those southern soul talents whose name you've heard, but can't always find on record! Jimmy's best known for his classic Muscle Shoals tune "Steal Away" – and that great number, plus many other similar ones, are presented on this obscure Vee Jay release – issued at a time when both that label and Chess were licensing a number of titles from Rick Hall's Fame studios. The sound is great – a key link in the southern scene of the 60s, and one that's often lost because it wasn't recorded for a bigger label, like Atlantic. Titles include "Steal Away", "Try Me", "I Want Justice", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Neighbor Neighbor", "I'm Getting Better", and "I'm Gonna Rise Again". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with obi!)

Little MiltonLittle Milton Sings Big Blues ... LP
Checker, 1966. Very Good ... $18.99
Big blues from Little Milton, recorded with a mighty big sound as well – thanks to the cool criss-crossing of soul and blues that was going down at Chess Records in the 60s! Milton's got this raw, raspy style in his voice – a nasty edge that mixes perfectly with his own sharp guitar lines – and which gets an extra kick from the production and arrangements of Gene Barge, who still knows how to keep the core combo sound that makes the album cook! Sonny Thompson plays piano on most tracks, and Phil Upchurch adds in a second guitar at times – but the real star of the show is always Milton – shining more brightly here than on most of his later records! The album includes versions of "Please Please Please", "Have Mercy Baby", "Fever", "Sneakin Around", and "Reconsider Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono Checker pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Otis SpannBlues Is Where It's At ... LP
Bluesway, Late 60s. Very Good ... $33.99
Otis Spann made some great records over the years, but he sounds especially nice on the handful of sessions he did for the Bluesway label – which seem to take a Chess Records approach, then give the whole thing an extra-added punch! Otis is in the lead on piano and vocals, but the group's got searing guitar from Muddy Watters, Sammy Lawhorn, and Luther Johnson – kicked in by fantastic rhythms from Mac Arnold on electric bass and Francis Clay on drops – all topped by some smoking work from George Smith on harmonica! The set was recorded live in the studio, and you can definitely hear some of the guests having a good time – while the group smoke their way through tunes that include "Popcorn Man", "Spann Blues", "Chicago Blues", "My Home Is On The Delta", "Nobody Knows Chicago Like I Do", and "Down On Sarah Street".

Includes their fantastic track "Pictures Of Matchstick Men", plus "Ice In The Sun", "Elizabeth Dreams", "Sunny Cellophane Sky", and "Spicks & Specks". Groovy cover, too, with the band sitting on a pile of matchbooks! LP, Vinyl record album

TuneweaversHappy Happy Birthday Baby/Ol Man River ... 7-inch
Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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
(Chess Blue Chips Series pressing.)
