Gene BargeDance With Daddy G ... LP
Checker, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A pretty hard rocking set of soul instrumentals from Gene Barge – a sax soloist with a honking King Curtis type sound, and a talent who was also doing a fair bit of producing and arranging for Chess during the 60s! This set is one of the few that Gene cut on his own, and is a loping set of ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fontella BassNew Look ... LP
Checker, 1965. Near Mint- ... 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 DiddleyBlack Gladiator ... LP
Checker, 1970. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A wicked reinvention of the sound of Bo Diddley – a set that electrifies his groove even more than before – and takes him into the same mix of funk and blues that Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf were exploring at the time! This album's right up there with the two Cadet/Chess classics by ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original blue fade label stereo pressing. Cover has light surface wear, bent a bit at the bottom right edge, and is split at the bottom half of the spine.)

✨✧ Bo DiddleyBo Diddley Is A Gunslinger ... LP
Checker, 1960. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 DiddleyBoss Man (aka Bo Diddley) ... LP
Checker, 1958. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A second pressing of the first Bo Diddley album – and a set that's fantastically twangy! We never tire of Bo Diddley's incredible guitar work – and you'll get plenty of it in this early album he cut for Chess, a tasty batch of 12 tracks, all original tunes with a stripped-down ...

Bo DiddleyHave Guitar Will Travel ... LP
Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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 ...

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 MiltonGrits Ain't Groceries (Checker) ... LP
Checker, 1969. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest albums ever cut by Little Milton – done at the end of the 60s with some hard Chicago soul arrangements from Gene Barge, and an overall style that mixes electric blues with some of the hard soul coming from the city's west side scene at the time! The album's much more of a ... (Blues) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Checker, 1965. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
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, 1966. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work – and only on 45! Bobby Moore's group cut one album for Chess – mostly with mellower deep soul numbers – but "Go Ahead And Burn" wasn't on it, and it's a killer killer cut, with a tight hard soul groove, wailing sax solo, and a cool spoken intro!

Joe TexHold On! It's Joe Tex ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Incredible early tracks from the great Joe Tex – recorded long before his bump and "I Gotcha" years, back when Joe was a sweet southern soul singer, with a strong penchant for a sad lyric, and a unique ability to shift between singing and talking, in a style that made him one of the ...

Checker, 1964. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
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

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 ...
