Great Twenty Eight

LP (Item 626926) Chess, 1950s/1960s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Originally: 39.99
(80s pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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!

More Chuck Berry
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good
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! The album may well be one of Chuck's most -hit filled, as it's overflowing with classics like "Rock & Roll ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sugar Pie DeSanto

Down In The Basement
Chess, Early 60s/1988. Near Mint-
A great little collection of work from Sugarpie DeSanto – one of our favorite female soul singers from the 60s Chess Records scene! Sugarpie has a sound that's as raw as that of Etta James or Fontella Bass at Chess – but which also has an earthier, harder-grooving style that's almost ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chess, 1966. Near Mint-
This was the follow-up LP to Billy Stewart's huge single of Gershwin's "Summertime", and it's got a similar approach of "funky soul takes on American pop music standards". "Summertime" isn't on the album, but all the tracks have a sound that falls in the same mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eugene Record

Eugene Record
Warner, 1977. Very Good
A great solo moment from Eugene Record – the singer who'd rose to fame with The Chi-Lites, and who still sounds pretty darn great here on his own! The album follows strongly from the best late styles of Record's previous group – and the tunes are a mix of ballads that Eugene could ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnnie Taylor

Eargasm
Columbia, 1976. Sealed
A landmark album from Johnnie Taylor – a set that not only gave his career a giant boost, but which also helped shift southern soul into hip new territory in the late 70s! The music's a great change from Taylor's previous work at Stax – and the set features warm production from Don ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Manchild

Power & Love
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1977. Very Good+
Early work by Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, working here with the young Chicago group Manchild – a funky soul outfit that was one of the city's last big new acts of the 70s. The band never really broke the charts that strongly – and on their funky cuts, they sound a bit too much ... LP, Vinyl record album
