Gene BargeDance With Daddy G ... LP
Checker, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A pretty hard rocking set of soul instrumentals from Gene Barge – a sax soloist with a honking King Curtis type sound, and a talent who was also doing a fair bit of producing and arranging for Chess during the 60s! This set is one of the few that Gene cut on his own, and is a loping set of ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Light blue label "checker piece" label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and light wear.)

✨✧ Martha BassI'm So Grateful ... LP
Checker, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... (Gospel) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing – very nice! Cover has very light wear and a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Bo Diddley500% More Man ... LP
Checker, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's the mid 60s, but Bo's still going strong, and still with his trademark raw groove that transformed a generation of rock and rollers. The sound is great, and the titles are all originals, filled with the sense of humor that's made Diddley's work some of the most easy to return to from the ...

(Original pressing – blue label with colored checker pieces – in great shape!)

✨✧ Bo DiddleyBlack Gladiator ... LP
Checker, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wicked reinvention of the sound of Bo Diddley – a set that electrifies his groove even more than before – and takes him into the same mix of funk and blues that Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf were exploring at the time! This album's right up there with the two Cadet/Chess classics by ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Checker/Sundazed, 1958. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
Fantastically twangy! We never tire of Bo Diddley's incredible guitar work – and you'll get plenty of it in this early album he cut for Chess, a tasty batch of 12 tracks, all original tunes with a stripped-down gutbuckety sound – rough, raw rhythms that feature plenty of Bo's gritty ...

FlamingosFlamingos ... LP
Checker, 1958. Very Good ... $49.99
Stunning early work by one of the best vocal groups of the 50s – raw harmony sides by The Flamingos, recorded for Chess Records in the years before their smoother later tracks for End! The style here is much closer to the streets – heavy on vocal interplay, with usually just a bit of ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, & Bo DiddleySuper Super Blues Band (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Checker/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A group that definitely lives up to its name – given that the lineup features the Chess Records stalwarts Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters! The set's maybe a bit more in the mode of Wolf or Waters than some of Bo's own records – although there's a bit of that riffing spark of ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

ViolinairesGroovin With Jesus (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Checker, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Damn funky gospel from The Violinaires – easily one of the hippest spiritual albums you could ever hope to find on Chess! The groove here is gritty Chicago funk, put together by Gene Barge with lots of heavy bass on the bottom – in a blend that's somewhere between the Cadet/Concept ...

✨✧ Sonny Boy WilliamsonDown & Out Blues ... LP
Checker, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw blues from Sonny Boy Williamson – harmonica, guitar, and some rough drumming underneath the vocals – all in a mode that has plenty of early Chess Records grit! And despite the "down and out" title and cover image, Sonny's got a heck of a lot of punch here – an ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album
