Duke, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made! The set's got an amazing something special that's unlike most other material of the time – a bit blues, but a lot of soul too – still with some echoes of R&B in the jazzier charts ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Rare Mississippi blues from Ranie Burnette – recorded in the early 80s, but with a timeless style that takes us right back to the delta!

Bo DiddleyAnother Dimension ... LP

Checker/Sundazed, 1958. New Copy ... $21.99 24.98
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 gutbuckety sound – rough, raw rhythms that feature plenty of Bo's gritty ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

New John Lee HookerBurnin' ... LP
Vee Jay, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Plenty of Burnin from John Lee Hooker, and about as classic as you can get for his Vee Jay years – especially considering that the album starts out with Hooker's killer cut "Boom Boom" – a number that may well have set fire to a whole generation of British and American rockers! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Herald, 1954. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Lightnin Hopkins at his best – a set that rings out with all his bold electric tones on the guitar, yet which also has the moody, stripped-down feel of a blues recording from a few decades before!
