An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made!

Rough and raw work from Big Bill Broonzy – well-done sides that feature Bill on vocals and acoustic guitar, recorded in Paris in the early 50s, and issued here in a US package on the Scepter label!

Bill Broonzy's a singer who recorded often in later years – but it's these early recordings that really won his fame – spare 78rpm sides that are full of dextrous guitar work that has plenty of jazzy inflections!

One of the youngest groups of the zydeco wave of the 70s – and one of the grooviest too!

Blue Thumb/Friday Music, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $24.99 26.98
Great early work from Albert Collins – the kind of mean, lean music that Collins specialized in before his later years of cliche – served up here in a style that's almost more funk than blues overall!

Giles Corey is a bluesman at heart, but he plays here in a style that's got lots of soul and funk touches too – particularly in the way he works his guitar with lots of wah-wah style riffs!

Checker (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... $13.99
A wicked reinvention of the sound of Bo Diddley – a set that electrifies his groove even more than before – and takes him into the same mix of funk and blues that Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf were exploring at the time!

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 CD

One of the rootsiest albums ever cut by Delmark Records – a late 70s set from this obscure Chicago duo, partially recorded at a small club on the south side!

Spare live material from the legendary Sleepy John Estes – a set that was recorded in Tokyo in the mid 70s, but wasn't issued in the US for many decades! Estes plays guitar and sings in a duo with harp player Hammie Nixon – who also sings a fair bit too, and creates this excellent ... read more CD

Frank Frost really kicks it hard on this set of classic recordings from the 60s – a batch of tracks that easily show why Frost was one of the funkiest bluesmen to record for the Jewel/Paula label! Frank sings and plays harmonica – but an equal attraction here is the rhythms – ... read more CD

Lowell FulsomLowell Fulsom In A Heavy Bag ... CD
Jewel/Fuel 2000, 1969. New Copy .... $4.99 11.98
The heavy bag here is a bluesy one – as Lowell Fullsom's working in territory that's got a lot of rootsy, almost southern blues in the mix – but which still cracks out at times with his hipper, more funk-tuned groove! There's a few tracks on here that hearken towards the "Tramp&quo ... read more CD

Lowell FulsonHung Down Head (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1950s. New Copy .... $13.99
Great early work from Lowell Fulson – tracks recorded in the 50s for Chess Records – all in Chicago, and a fair bit more obscure than some of Lowell's better-known sides from the 60s! There's still a nicely gritty groove going on here – a style that's rooted in blues, but which ... read more CD

Buddy GuyI Left My Blues In San Francisco (with bonus tracks) ... CD

Not the Bay Area effort you might guess from the title – and instead a sweet Chicago session that's easily one of the funkiest records that Buddy Guy ever cut!

Classic work from Slim Harpo – an album that kicks off with one of his biggest hits ever, and follows with plenty of great tunes as well! Things here are pretty rootsy and stripped-down – lots of spare, slowish rhythms (but a few funkier ones too!) – and instrumentation that's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
