Gene AmmonsJust Jug ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
One of those shady little sessions that Gene Ammons cut for Argo when he wasn't supposed to be recording for anyone but Prestige – and a great album that never got full circulation because of contract difficulties.

Argo, 1964. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the few rare albums cut by Chicago soul jazz singer Jean DuShon, an artist that Chess really tried to push in the mid 60s, but who never really seemed to make it.
