Martha BassI'm So Grateful ... LP
Checker, 1966. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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 ... (Gospel) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – very nice! Cover has a cutout hole.)

Alex BradfordKeep On Praying ... LP
Checker, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Classic Chess gospel, recorded in Chicago in the mid 60's, and with production by the great Gene Barge, who made so many of Chess' gospel albums sound like their best soul LPs. Includes "I Found A New Doctor", "When My Time Comes", "I Know Better Now", "What Have ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bo DiddleyBlack Gladiator ... LP
Checker, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... 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 ... Out Of Stock
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 ...

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Gunslinger ... LP
Checker, 1960. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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 DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Lover (180 gram mono edition) ... LP
Checker/Sundazed, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 24.99
Hardly the love song album you might guess from the title – and instead, a classic batch of Chess Records material from the mighty Bo Diddley! The sound is loud, echoey, and nice and raw – the kind of unique groove that really made Diddley a standout in the rock and roll years – ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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 ...

Bo DiddleyHave Guitar Will Travel ... LP
Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this! The album's a real standout, even in the classic Chess catalog of the early years –no filler, no covers, just all original material by Bo Diddley – done in that ...

✨✧ Bo DiddleyHey Good Looking ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic Bo on Checker, with certified choppy grooves, and some of the loosest, wildest lyrics you'll ever hear on the label. Every cut's an original, except for the title track, which is his version of the Chuck Berry song. Tracks include "Mush Mouth Millie", "Mummy Walk", ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little MiltonIf Walls Could Talk ... LP
Checker, 1969. Very Good+ ... $34.99
A great example of why Little Milton was always one of the few Chicago blues artists who could also break strongly in the soul camp at the time – and a beautifully balanced set that perfectly shows both sides of the Chicago scene of the time! Production is by old Vee Jay maestro Calvin ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Little MiltonLittle Milton Sings Big Blues ... LP
Checker, 1966. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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 ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Reeves JrBorn To Love Me ... LP
Checker, 1970. Very Good ... $14.99
A great mix of older and newer Chess Records blues modes – and a set cut by one of the lesser-known artists to work for the label! At some level, Jimmy Reeves Jr hearkens back to some of the more folksy blues artists who recorded for Chess in the 50s – but the setting here is slightly ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tab SmithKeeping Tab ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $5.99
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
