Super Super Blues Band

LP (Item 508379) Checker, 1967 — Condition: Very Good+
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

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 his at times – and the tracks are often nice and long, with more than enough room to make you feel like Phil Chess gave these guys plenty of space in the studio to hang out, and find the right way to interact. As much as we love Chess albums with short songs and a soulful punch, we really appreciate it when they can break format and open up on a session like this – which really helps create a unique moment on record! Titles include "Goin Down Slow", "Long Distance Call", "Sweet Little Angel", "Ooh Baby & Wrecking My Love Life", and "Spoonful".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue fade label stereo pressing. Cover has some wear, aging, and some calculations in pen on front.)

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.

If it were up to us, every song Bo recorded would have been a hit – because they're all so great!

Checker, 1966. Very Good+
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!

The definitely got the title right here – as BB King is plenty great, and already a powerhouse in these early years of his career!

Crown, Early 50s. Very Good
Howlin Wolf sings the blues, and comes across in a way that influences an entire generation too – with that raw, raspy sound that made the singer a perfect blend of delta roots and contemporary sounds that were bubbling up in the postwar years!

Yambo, Early 70s. Very Good+
Even though Chicago was a strong blues city in the 70s, there still weren't that many underground recordings of the music – as most of the sessions were in the hands of the bigger (or soon to be bigger) labels, which wasn't really the case with the soul sessions at the same time. This one's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rare 50s work from Joe Hill Louis – a player who worked around town as a one man blues band – and who was recorded early on by Sun Records! These sides are a mix of solo material, and work with a bit of added accompaniment – including one with Walter Horton on harmonica. LP, Vinyl record album

The title definitely gets it right – as this 70s collection brings together most of the best Chess Records material by Howlin Wolf from the late 50s and early 60s – almost all of them small combo sides that present the man in all of his raspy, growling glory!
