The CHESS BOX set of 7″ vinyl 45s that we highlighted last month (see our archive) is at long last officially available. ‘CHESS NORTHERN SOUL volume II’ contains … seven 7″ singles (complete with download card) offering fourteen classy Chess classics that range from the hard to find ‘A Mighty Good Lover’ from the Vashonettes to the better known ‘Let’s Wade In The Water’ from Marlena Shaw.

There’s plenty of classic early 60s soul like Jackie Ross’ ‘My Square’ and Sugar Pie DeSanto’s ‘Talkin’, Dreamin’, Boastin” alongside later stuff like the Vibrations’ Philly produced ‘Make It Last’

‘CHESS NORTHERN SOUL volume II’ is out right now and retails at around £55
