16 All Time Greatest Hits

LP (Item 77584) Checker, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
If it were up to us, every song Bo recorded would have been a hit – because they're all so great! This album does a pretty good job of sorting out the best numbers, though – picking 16 tracks from his all-great albums for Chess – with a focus on the tightest and most groove-heavy numbers, all of which feature that wild square guitar! Titles include "Pretty Thing", "I'm A Man", "Bo Diddley", "Bring It To Jerome", "Hey Bo Diddley", "Road Runner", "Bo Diddley Is A Gunslinger", and "Hush Your Mouth".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Bo Diddley

His Greatest Sides
Chess, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Raw, ragged, rough, and ready – killer early work by Bo Diddley, clearly in a class by itself! The Bo Diddley groove isn't blues, isn't soul, and isn't R&B – it's instead a mad blend of rhythm, scratchy guitar, and spontaneously playful vocals that few other singers could ever hope ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
A mad bit of music from the great Bo Diddley – recorded after his early 70s funk records on Chess – but with a similar genre-tripping style! The album's got this full-on fuzzy feel right from the start – put together by producer Ron Terry, who matches Diddley's wilder side with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Checker, 1950s. Very Good+
A vintage collection of early blues from Chess Records – with tracks that include "Lima Beans" by Eddie Chamblee, "Bo Diddley" by Bo Diddley, "I Don't Know What I'll Do" by Sugar Boy Crawford, "Country" by Gene Barge, "Juke" by Little Walter, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Bland

Here's The Man
Duke, 1962. Very Good
One of a handful of amazing early records from Bobby Blue Bland – genre-setting material that was partly blues, partly soul, and still had some of the fuller currents of the earlier R&B years too! Bobby's voice is incredible – one of the most distinct in soul, and up there with ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Superior, 1960. Very Good
Great raw sounds from Elmore James – and a record that definitely shows his strong connection to the early years of soul music too! The style is still blues, but the arrangements and production have lots of early soul inflections – bits borrowed from tighter R&B records, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chicago – The Blues Today Vol 1
Vanguard, 1966. Near Mint-
A seminal set of Chicago blues – the first volume in a series of classic recordings done by Vanguard Records in an effort to show the rest of the world all the hip new sounds that were coming out of the Windy City in the 60s! The approach here is a bit like some of the rural blues sets from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Texas Flood
Epic, 1983. Very Good
The debut album from Stevie Ray Vaughan, and a set that firmly helped redirect blues music in the 80s – maybe getting things a bit back on track, after so many influences from rock during the previous decade – even though it could also be said that the set was put together perfectly for ...
