Fontella BassNew Look ... LP
Checker, 1965. Very Good+ ... $33.99
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

OW BrownI'll Be Home After While ... LP
Checker, 1967. Near Mint- ... $9.99

✨✧ Bo Diddley16 All Time Greatest Hits ... LP
Checker, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
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 ...

Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Gunslinger (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Checker/Universal (Japan), 1960. Used ... $28.99
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 ...

✨✧ Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, & Bo DiddleySuper Super Blues Band ... LP
Checker, 1967. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 MiltonLittle Milton Sings Big Blues ... LP
Checker, 1966. Very Good+ ... $18.99
Big blues from Little Milton, recorded with a mighty big sound as well – thanks to the cool criss-crossing of soul and blues that was going down at Chess Records in the 60s! Milton's got this raw, raspy style in his voice – a nasty edge that mixes perfectly with his own sharp guitar ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ray ScottPrayer ... LP
Checker, Late 60s. Sealed ... $0.99
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) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tab SmithKeeping Tab ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice set of moody mellow late-nite tracks from Chicago tenorist Tab Smith. Although Smith played for years in bands such as those of Basie and Lucky Millinder, this is one of the few records he ever cut under his own name. The session's got Smith fronting solos with uncredited backing by a ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Multi-color vinyl, white label promo, in great shape! Top cover seam has just a hint of seam splitting, but the cover is in great shape overall.)

Soul StirrersTribute To Sam Cooke ... LP
Checker, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
The Soul Stirrers pay tribute to Sam Cooke – once a member of their group, back in the days before he made the shift from gospel music to secular soul! As you might guess, the tribute focuses on gospel tunes that Sam sang with the Stirrers – redone here with strong 60s Chess gospel ... (Gospel) read more LP, Vinyl record album

ViolinairesGroovin With Jesus (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Checker, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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 ...
