Description


Description

Any dedicated British Soul / R&B vinyl scholar will testify to the frustrating quest of collecting and completing the British Chess label. Even though nationally promoted and distributed by the mighty PYE Records. The labels EP’s & Albums are notoriously elusive.

Before you today is their 27th. Album release, in a series I’ve personally never witnessed complete. This album has always been very hard to acquire, but at this level of condition almost impossible.

So listen to the a King of Chicago R&B, we chosen an impressive sample of what this album has to offer the listener.

What is offers the collector is glaringly obvious. Rarity, quality, sleeve-art and a chance to complete one of the most challenging tasks in British collecting. A full run of UK Chess albums - what an eye-popping sight that would be.

Condition Report

Spectacular condition!! One owner purchased upon release in 1966 and the vinyl immediately stored in audiophile poly-inner sleeve. Condition of the vinyl and label could not be finer. Laminated cover has a tiny light browning bottom left corner see scans.
Light and the whole albums only forgivable flaw.
