Chess Records

Former Location –
Chess Records was located at several different locations on the south side of Chicago, but this is the most famous location and was immortalized by the Rolling Stones in the song “2120 South Michigan Avenue”, which was an instrumental recorded at that address during their first U.S. tour in 1964.

Many of the artists that recorded here were later covered by other artists that became more famous than the original ones. The original artists that recorded here include Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Willie Dixon and Howlin’ Wolf.
