Martha BassI'm So Grateful (mono & stereo mixes) ... CD
Checker/Righteous (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $5.99 13.99
One of the most soulful gospel albums ever issued by Chess – the debut of singer Martha Bass, and a set that can almost stand up to other 60s label classics by artists like Mitty Collier or Fontella Bass! Gene Barge handles the arrangements, and things are nice and lean – just a bit of piano or organ vamping along with rhythm, but mostly letting Martha's vocals sing out loud and proud in the lead – with a bold, righteous style that hardly ever needs any other sort of accompaniment! Titles include "I'm So Grateful", "What Manner Of Man Is This", "Be Still", "I'm Getting Nearer My Home", "Mother's Plea", and "Everybody Will Be Happy". CD also features full stereo and mono mixes of the album! CD

✨✧ VariousChess Club Rhythm & Soul ... CD
Chess/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer tracks from the vaults of Chess Records – a few classics, mixed with a lot more rare gems that really live up to the mod image and club-grooving promise of the cover! The work here is the kind that easily crossed the Atlantic back in the day, to turn on the young ears of the hip London scene – either in the mod clubs of the 60s, or the rooms that were driven by Brit collectors of rare soul in the 70s! Many numbers here only ever appeared on singles back in the day – the kind of 45s that made the Chicago label a powerhouse of soul – plus jazz and blues as well – all of which are included here. The set features 25 titles in all – and tracks include "Mellow Fellow" by Etta James, "Git Out" by Mitty Collier, "Hey Mr. DJ" by Bobby Moore & the Rhythm Aces, "My Babe" by Little Walter, "Who's That Guy" by the Kolettes, "Can't Make It Without You" by Fred Hughes, "Help Me" by Sonny Boy Williamson, "Do I Make Myself Clear" by Etta James & Sugar Pie Desanto, "A Knife & A Fork" by Kip Anderson, "Must I Holler" by Jamo Thomas, "Here Comes The Judge" by Pigmeat Markham, "Ain't It" by Jack McDuff, "Let's Wade In The Water" by Marlena Shaw, and "Musty Rusty" by Lou Donaldson.

VariousChicago Radio Soul ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A really great look at a special side of the Chess Records soul catalog of the 60s – tracks that were very big on Chicago airwaves in the label's home town, yet which hardly got much play at all in the rest of the country! The collection's put together by Robert Pruter – the man who (literally) wrote the book on Chicago soul – and it's a wonderful portrait of soul in the Windy City of the 60s, with strands of music that nicely differ from the overplayed hits in later years. The collection also stands as a super-strong tribute to the never-ending genius of Chess Records – a label that never seems to let us down whenever we uncover a soul single we've never heard before! Titles include "Shy Guy" by The Radiants, "No Faith No Love" by Mitty Collier, "I Can't Help Myself" by The Gems, "Love Is A 5 Letter Word" by James Phelps, "A Thousand Miles Away" by Jo Ann Garrett, "Selfish One" by Jackie Ross, "Strange Feeling" by Billy Stewart, "The Creeper" by Freddy Robinson, "Peak Of Love" by Bobby McClure, "Lonely Girl" by Andrea Davis, "This Heart Of Mine" by Tony Clarke, "Bossa Nova Bird" by The Dells, and "Only Time Will Tell" by Etta James.

Fame/Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $34.99
Genius work from one of the greatest Southern Soul studios ever – Muscle Shoals' legendary Fame Studios – the start of a huge wave of great music in the 60s, and a genre-changing sound that's still going strong today! The package is the best we've ever seen to look at Fame – not just a killer selection of the studio's music – 75 tracks that bring together rare singles, hits, and some lesser-known gems – but also a beautiful hardcover book, filled with pages and pages of great notes, vintage images, and more – really telling the unique take of Fame, producer Rick Hall, and all the mighty talents who helped make Muscle Shoals one of the most important sites for soul music in the 60s and 70s. Titles include "Ten Miles High" by David & The Giants, "Search Your Heart" by George Jackson, "Let Them Talk" by Dan Penn, "Two In The Morning" by Spooner's Crowd, "Lady In The Rain" by Lowell Fulson, "Wanted Lover" by James Govan, "Grits & Gravy" by The Fame Gang, "Get Involved" by George Soule, "What Color Is Love" by Roscoe Robinson, "Laugh It Off" by The Tams, "Thief In The Night" by Ben & Spence, "Take Me Just As I Am" by Mitty Collier, "I'm Just A Prisoner" by Candi Staton, "Thread The Needle" by Clarence & Calvin, and "Slippin Around With You" by Art Freeman.

VariousChess Uptown Soul ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... About June 1, 2016
Beautiful compilation of sophisticated soul tracks from the Chess/Cadet/Argo studios of the late 60's. There's 24 totally solid tracks here, all of which highlight the genius of the Chess arranging style. There's a few hits, like "The Entertainer" by Tony Clarke and the cosmic "Wear it On Our Face" by the Dells (complete with John Cage-esque prepared piano!), but there's also loads of hard to find tracks, many by artists who never put out an album for the label, like Maurice & Mac, The Chessmen, The Knight Brothers, and Spooner's Crowd. More great stuff's by Marlena Shaw, Mitty Collier, Jackie Ross, and James Phelps. CD

VariousReaching Out – Chess Records At Fame Studios ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Chicago meets Muscle Shoals – a monumental moment in late 60s soul that's never fully been given its due before! The set brings together work from the late 60s period in which Chicago's Chess Records issued a slew of incredible singles recorded at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals – deep soul gems that have all the grit and power of the usual Chess Records material, but which have a different vibe – given the production by Rick Hall, and backing by the genius studio musicians at Muscle Shoals! Some of the names are ones you'd recognize from Chicago Chess recordings, and others are artists the label discovered in the south – and had Fame handle for them – which makes for a very nice mix of material. In true Ace/Kent style, there's also some unreleased tracks on the set – and the package features a total of 24 tracks that include "It's All Wrong But It's Alright" by Laura Lee, "Good To Me" and "Let's Do It Over" by Irma Thomas, "The Sidewinder" by Charles Chalmers, "Security" and "Don't Lose Your Good Thing" by Etta James, "You're Living A Lie" by Mitty Collier, "Come Back Baby" and "Reaching Out" by Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces, "Party Time" by Lee Webber, "Lean On Me" and "So Much Love" by Maurice & Mac, "Two In The Morning" by Charles Chalmers, and "Too Soon To Know" by Mitty Collier.
