✨✧ Fontella BassNew Look ... LP
Checker, 1965. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
With that whip in her hand, we're not gonna argue with Fontella Bass about her New Look in the photo – and we can definitely say that the whole classic album definitely lives up to her hip, powerful stance on the cover! Fontella's a singer who started in gospel, later sung jazz, but who ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bo DiddleyBo Diddley In The Spotlight ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Man, with a square guitar and a badass style of presentation, it's hard to imagine how Bo could manage to NOT be in the spotlight! The album, like all his early Chess sides, is a real cut above the usual R&B set – with all original tracks, a really self-contained approach, and a no-nonsen ...

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Gunslinger ... LP
Checker, 1960. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album! Bo might have gotten saddled (no pun intended!) with a silly gimmick for the title and image of the set – but the album's one of his best from the early Chess years, and features a rip-roaring ...

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Lover ... LP
Checker, 1961. Very Good ... $59.99
Hardly the love song album you might guess from the title – and instead, a classic batch of Chess Records material from the mighty Bo Diddley! The sound is loud, echoey, and nice and raw – the kind of unique groove that really made Diddley a standout in the rock and roll years – ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Bo DiddleyGo Bo Diddley ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Go go go Bo Diddley – to a groove that's completely your own, and completely mindblowing on early records like this! Bo is unstoppable at this point in his career – and given a heck of a lot more freedom than most other soul artists, too – as he wrote, arranged, and really put ...

Bo DiddleyHave Guitar Will Travel ... LP
Checker, 1960. Very Good- ... $34.99
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this! The album's a real standout, even in the classic Chess catalog of the early years –no filler, no covers, just all original material by Bo Diddley – done in that ...

Checker, 1967. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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 ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Little MiltonWe're Gonna Make It ... LP
Checker, 1965. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A classic Chicago crossover of blues and soul – a wonderful album from Little Milton, and one that's cut with some of the same sophisticated overtones as work by Bobby "Blue" Bland at the time! The backings here are superb – arranged by Phil Wright and James Carter with a ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Checker, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $39.99
A wonderful album of southern soul – and the only full-length LP cut by Bobby Moore and his long-lived Rhythm Aces combo! The group's the sort that slaved away endlessly in live shows all over the south – playing on their own, or providing extra backup for countless big stars touring ...

Jimmy Reeves JrBorn To Love Me ... LP
Checker, 1970. Near Mint- ... $18.99
A great mix of older and newer Chess Records blues modes – and a set cut by one of the lesser-known artists to work for the label! At some level, Jimmy Reeves Jr hearkens back to some of the more folksy blues artists who recorded for Chess in the 50s – but the setting here is slightly ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Checker, Late 60s. Sealed ... $7.99
Ray Scott performs an extended reading of Redd Foxx's "The Prayer" – caught in a live setting that's not credited in the notes, and getting some very subtle funky backing at the bottom! Ray's voice is way up front in the mix, and the small combo that vamps and grooves are very ... (Comedy/Spoken) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy TuckerHi-Heel Sneakers ... LP
Checker, 1964. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Tommy Tucker may be best-remembered for the title track of this classic album – a tune that was covered by countless other artists in the 60s – but he's a hell of a talent with a mighty great range, and a gritty, soulful sound that's perfect for early 60s Chess Records! The album's got ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

VibrationsWatusi/Wallflower ... 7-inch
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good ... $0.99
"Watusi" is a classic groover from The Vibrations – a slowly dancing number with a hard-sock groove, one of the group's best early cuts! "Wallflower" is more uptempo, tighter harmonies and a smoother groove – kind of a sing-song playful number, with raw vocals on ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Checker, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Damn funky gospel from The Violinaires – easily one of the hippest spiritual albums you could ever hope to find on Chess! The groove here is gritty Chicago funk, put together by Gene Barge with lots of heavy bass on the bottom – in a blend that's somewhere between the Cadet/Concept ...
