Mad Man Blues

LP (Item 714765) Chess, 1982 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP
(80s Chess Masters pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Fantasy, 1959. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A pair of very stripped-down albums from John Lee Hooker – issued together in this 70s set! First up is Country Blues Of John Lee Hooker – featuring the legendary John Lee Hooker, heard here in one of his more obscure recordings from the late 50s – at least in contrast to his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, 1959. Near Mint-
The Big Bill in the title is Big Bill Broonzy – a key influence on midcentury bluesmen all over the US, and paid tribute to nicely here by Muddy Waters! Given this tribute approach, the sound's a bit rootsier than some of Waters' other work for Chess at the time – a bit more emphasis ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bo Diddley/Chuck Berry

Two Great Guitars
Chess, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry come together in a really unique album for Chess Records in the 60s – and that's saying a lot, given all the groundbreaking sounds we heard from that label at the time! The format is quite unusual – as each side features a long instrumental jam that really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Muddy kicks it live in the studio at Woodstock with a number of rock and/or blues luminaries in toe for this mid 70s gig – including the great Pinetop Perkins on piano, Paul Butterfield on harmonica, and Levon Helm on bass and drums! Interestingly, the set is much more of return to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Howlin Wolf

Back Door Wolf
Chess, 1973. Near Mint-
Later Chess work by Howlin Wolf, but done in a rootsier electric mode that's similar to his earlier forays for the label! The set's from the years when Chess was backing off that great funk approach they brought to blues work at the end of the 60s – kind of a "back to basics" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess/Festival, 1950s/1960s. Near Mint-
Includes work by Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Lowell Fulsom, John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Elmore James, and Memphis Slim. LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Rogers

Chicago Bound
Chess (Italy), 1950s. Near Mint-
The title's an apt one here, as Jimmy Rogers was one of the many bluesmen who started out in the south, but headed to Chicago for greater fame – which was a good thing for Chess Records, who managed to come some of these great sides in the 50s! Rogers both sings and plays guitar – the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Chess, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Is it Fulsom or Fulson? We're not going to try and present ourselves as the authority, but what we can tell you is this collection features 27 tracks from the man, mostly raw blues, though a number of cuts are more produced, with full horn section and piano complementing Fulsom's guitar and vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album

Howlin Wolf

London Sessions
Chess, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
A famous date that showcases the Chess Records influence on the sound of the Brit rock scene – one that has a number of key players "giving back" to the label, and working on a special date with Howlin Wolf! Wolf's rough vocals are in the lead on all tracks, and he also plays a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Boy Williamson

Real Folk Blues
Chess, Late 1950s/Early 1960s. Near Mint-
Not as folksy as you might think from the title – thanks to a really powerful presentation by Sonny Boy Williamson! The style here has echoes of Bo Diddley or Jimmy Reed's sense of rhythm – a more upbeat and electrified Chicago approach than Chess was serving up a decade before – ... LP, Vinyl record album
