Gene ChandlerDuke Of Soul (80s pressing) ... LP
Checker, 1967. Very Good ... $9.99
Fantastic bit of soul by Gene Chandler, and despite the "hit" referred to in the title, the album's a great batch of stuff that doesn't really see the light of day that often! Includes his great remake of "Rainbow", titled "Rainbow 65", and featuring some amazing live ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley (Checker 2984) ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $38.99
A classic Chess-era Bo Diddley album – one you never come across. We never tire of Bo Diddley's incredible guitar work – and you'll get plenty of its raw goodness on this early Checker LP. This set's a tasty, fantastically twangy batch of 12 tracks, almost all original tunes with a ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and a stereo sticker. Most likely the late 60s pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Gunslinger ... LP
Checker, 1960. Very Good+ (reissue)... $7.99
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album! Bo might have gotten saddled (no pun intended!) with a silly gimmick for the title and image of the set – but the album's one of his best from the early Chess years, and features a rip-roaring ...

✨✧ Bo DiddleyBoss Man (aka Bo Diddley) ... LP
Checker, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A second pressing of the first Bo Diddley album – and a set that's 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 ...

(Sealed, with a cut corner. Appears to be a late 60s/early 70s pressing – pre GRT.)

✨✧ Bo DiddleyGo Bo Diddley ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Go go go Bo Diddley – to a groove that's completely your own, and completely mindblowing on early records like this! Bo is unstoppable at this point in his career – and given a heck of a lot more freedom than most other soul artists, too – as he wrote, arranged, and really put ...

(Black label Checker pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear, with split top & bottom seams. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Bo DiddleySurfin With Bo Diddley ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really unique album from Bo Diddley – and exactly what the title says, a surf record with Bo on guitar! The gimmick shouldn't work, but it's really great – as Bo plays guitar alongside more standard surf-styled instrumentals – but still brings plenty of his raw and bluesy ...

(Sealed – seems to be a 60s pressing. Cover has a cutout hole in the middle.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Aretha FranklinGospel Soul OF Aretha Franklin (aka Songs Of Faith) ... LP
Checker, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Aretha may have recorded for Columbia and Atlantic under her own contracts, but her father, the Reverend CL Franklin, was one of Chess/Checker's biggest recording artists – and these gospel tracks are probably lifted from pre-Columbia albums of Franklins that had Aretha singing with the group. ...

✨✧ Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, & Bo DiddleySuper Super Blues Band (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Checker/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... 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
(Limited edition colored vinyl!)

Little MiltonWe're Gonna Make It ... LP
Checker, 1965. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A classic Chicago crossover of blues and soul – a wonderful album from Little Milton, and one that's cut with some of the same sophisticated overtones as work by Bobby "Blue" Bland at the time! The backings here are superb – arranged by Phil Wright and James Carter with a ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original light blue "checker piece" label pressing – in stunning shape!)

Norfleet BrothersShadrach ... LP
Checker, 1963. Very Good+ ... $28.99
A killer bit of gospel on Chess Records – supervised by Willie Dixon, who definitely helped the group hit some soulful currents in the studio! (Gospel) LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy original checker piece pressing!)

✨✧ Salem TravelersChildren Gone Astray ... LP
Checker, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A damn great little record – with more than enough funky undercurrents in the backings to set it apart from the usual gospel set! Loads of righteous numbers on here – with hip arrangements by Ralph Bass and Sonny Thompson. (Gospel) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner & small spot of tape over part of the spine.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Harold Smith & His Majestic ChoirJust As I Am ... LP
Checker, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Soulful 60s Chess Records gospel – recorded at the Golden World Studios in Detroit, with production by Gene Barge! (Gospel) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 60s pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Tab SmithKeeping Tab ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice set of moody mellow late-nite tracks from Chicago tenorist Tab Smith. Although Smith played for years in bands such as those of Basie and Lucky Millinder, this is one of the few records he ever cut under his own name. The session's got Smith fronting solos with uncredited backing by a ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe TexHold On! It's Joe Tex ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
Wow! Rare early stuff by Joe Tex, released on Checker in a great album that includes two part versions of tracks like "All I Could Do Was Cry" and "I'll Never Break Your Heart". Includes "You Keep Her", his answer song to James Brown, and lots of other great stuff. (Soul) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original light blue label pressing with checker pieces. Cover is lightly stained and wavy along the opening, with splitting on the bottom seam, and some pencil streaks/doodles on front & back.)

ViolinairesGroovin With Jesus (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Checker, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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 ...
