LP (Item 473259) Chess, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

Surprisingly nice work from Chuck Berry – material recorded at the start of the 70s, all with a sound that's much more bluesy than you might expect! There's hardly any oldies cliches going on here at all – and although Chuck still pushes his classic chugging guitar groove on many numbers, it's got less of the overplayed style that you might expect. Production is slightly hip, and although not in the funkier mode of other Chess blues sides of the time, there is a subtle undercurrent of funkiness in some of the rhythms. Titles include "Instrumental", "Gun", "Christmas", "Tulane", "Some People", "Fish & Chips", and "Flyin Home".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo. Cover has a light wear, a name in marker, and some aging.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Chuck Berry makes the same London move as some of his other Chess Records contemporaries – and the result is one of Chuck's best albums from the later years!

The title's certainly straightforward and to the point – but then again, there's not a lot to say about this one except that it's pure Chuck Berry all the way through!

SCLC Operation Breadbasket Orch & Choir

On The Case
Chess, 1970. Very Good
A full-blown, very righteous offering from Chess to the political cause of Operation Breadbasket! Tenorist Ben Branch leads the large gospel-tinged group – and sax player Gene Barge produces and plays, with a style that's very much in the Chess/Checker bag of the late 60s soul era. Most ...

Bama – The Village Poet

Ghettos Of The Mind
Chess, 1974. Very Good-
A lost classic in the funky poetry mode of the 70s – and right up there with the best work from the time by the Last Poets, Jim Ingram, or Gil Scott Heron! Bama's got a rough-edged voice that works very well with the funkier backings of the set – handled by a team that includes Bernard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Etta James

Etta James (1973)
Chess, 1973. Very Good+
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!

Good Thang
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+
A definite good thang from Faze-O – easily the masters of snakey funk at the end of the 70s! The set's got loads of great elements that echo the group's Riding High debut – a groove that never goes too far over the top, and which kicks back at a pace that so many others would copy a ...

RCA, 1973. Very Good+
Although this set was recorded early in the history of the Main Ingredient's career, it also compiles tracks from their strongest period – which means that nearly every track's a winner, and all are graced by smooth uptown soul arrangements by Bert DeCoteaux. Includes their seminal AM radio ... LP, Vinyl record album
