“Check Mate” was a subsidiary of the Chicago based “Chess label”. When the “Anna” label was bought by Berry Gordy in April 1961, Gwen Gordy and Billy Davis continued to sell Anna’s master tapes to Chess. Check-Mate was started to release Detroit area artists, and a number of Anna masters were released on Check-Mate during 1961 and 1962. Little is known about Rubien Fort, apart from this 1962 release. This disc has very light wear, whilst retaining gloss, conservatively graded in VG++ condition, thought the flip, which is worth checking out has some light background noise
